Why this petition matters

Started by Jen Weston

I’m a real estate broker in California and my partner and I are SICKENED by the enforcement of the California Eviction Moratorium. We have clients who are mom and pop landlords, currently in dire financial loss because the law protects tenants who’s tenancy has ended and tenants who have failed to pay rent. In fact we have one client who’s squatter has not paid since January 21, 2020 since their tenancy has ended. This squatter who resides in Palmdale, has since moved in their entire family and has not paid one penny to the landlord since their tenancy has ended. My client has filed an eviction case but the courts are so backed up with these types of cases and in the meantime the landlord keeps accruing mortgage bills that’s supposed to be covered by rent. Not to mention if there’s a repair to be done the landlord is still responsible to fix it even though they have not received any payments from the squatters who are no longer their tenants as the health department requires it. AGAIN THESE PEOPLE ARE SQUATTERS AND THEIR TENANCY ENDED 2 and a half years ago and the landlord has not received any rent from these squatters. There are many good landlords in this situation but the law favors tenants / squatters here in California. The law and legislature a make it very difficult for good landlords to do business here in California and they are taking big losses. The landlord has applied for rent relief and what a joke that is as they have millions of applicants and are many months behind in responding or approving the application.Our Governor  Gavin Newsom ….has done a  DISSERVICE TO LANDLORDS  in California and it’s time to protect Landlords affected by the Eviction Moratorium.
