Courts Now Allowing Evictions to Proceed on Sept. 2

Hot off the presses! See the announcement below that the court’s emergency orders
(which among other things prevented summons being issued on unlawful detainers)
are set to expire September 1, which means eviction cases can start proceeding
through the court system on September 2.

While this is indeed good news for our community owners who need to complete
their evictions, everyone should also be aware that there has been a lot of buzz in the news that the legislature will now pass some moratorium in light of what the courts have now done in lifting its emergency orders (that had effectively halted eviction actions with limited exceptions).

My thoughts: California Supreme Court Chief Justice Cantil-Sakauye is putting her foot down with the governor and legislature to put the onus back on them to properly legislate this moratorium or end it all together. My prediction is that we will see the California legislature take accelerated action over the next two weeks to pass a bill extending the moratorium against evictions into the foreseeable future and at least past the holiday season and through the end of the year possibly. Stay tuned folks, it is going to be an interesting next few weeks!
