The Myth Behind Los Angeles Covid19 Eviction Moratorium
After asking the tough questions to a skilled attorney, this attorney provided his answer: (quote) "Although the Los Angeles County COVID-19 Eviction Moratorium remains in effect through December 31, 2022, said ordinance reads: “A Tenant shall not be evicted where grounds for terminating the tenancy or occupancy is not based on any alleged fault of the Tenant, including, but not limited to, those stated in Code of Civil Procedure section 1161 et seq., Civil Code section 1946.2 et seq., and Chapters 8.52 and 8.57 of the County Code.”
"The ordinance is only pertaining to “no fault” evictions. Although no-fault termination of tenancy or occupancy also includes the intent to demolish or to substantially remodel the real property, however, not only does this only applies to “no fault” evictions, the
eviction would still be permissive where health and safety of the tenant and landlord makes the eviction necessary. There you have it, you can still evict a tenant when they are at fault."
