New bill relieves tenants and causes landlords pain

Governor Gavin Newsom signed a new bill, AB 3088 COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act of 2020 due to California’s eviction wave. The new bill prohibits landlords from evicting any resident who was unable to pay rent between March 1, 2020, and Aug. 31, 2020, due to financial hardships specifically because of the COVID-19 pandemic. What the bill is proposing is biased towards tenants.
