Jun 22 - Cali to Pay off all Past Due Rent Accrued During COVID, Renters Have Clean Slate
 

 
California is paying off residents' past due rent that was accrued during the COVID-19 pandemic, giving renters a clean slate, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced recently.

The state's $5.2 billion in funds from Congressionally-approved aid packages is enough to pay off overdue rent, according to Newsom's senior counselor on housing and homelessness, Jason Elliott, the a*sociated Press reported. However, just $32 million out of $490 million in requests for rental a*sistance through May 31 have been covered so far, according to a California Department Housing and Community Development report.

"We should do our best to get back to the starting point where we were in December of 2019. Anything other than that is taking advantage of a crisis," said Keith Becker, a property manager in Sonoma County. He revealed that 14 tenants have not paid $100,000 worth of rent.

Newsom says California will pay off all past-due rent accumulated in the nation's most populated state because of the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, promising to make landlords whole.

Left unsettled is whether California will continue to ban evictions for unpaid rent beyond June 30, a pandemic-related order that was meant to be temporary but is proving difficult to undo.

Federal eviction protections also are set to expire on June 30. California had passed its own protections that applied to more people than the federal protections.

Newsom and state legislative leaders are meeting privately regarding the protections, part of the negotiations over the state's roughly $260 billion operating budget. An extension of the eviction ban seems likely to give California more time to spend all the money to cover unpaid rent. But landlords and tenants' rights groups are arguing over how long that extension should last.

"The expectation for people to be up and at 'em and ready to pay rent on July 1 is wholeheartedly unfair," said Kelli Lloyd, a 43-year-old single mother who says she has not worked consistently since the pandemic began in March 2020.

Lloyd ó a member of the advocacy group Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment ó is supposed to pay $1,924 a month for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom rent-controlled apartment in the Crenshaw district of south Los Angeles. But she says she's $30,000 behind after not working for most of the last year to care for her two children as daycare centers closed and schools halted in-person learning.

That debt will likely be covered by the government. But Lloyd said she recently lost a job at a real estate brokerage and hasn't found another one yet. She's worried she could be evicted if the protections expire.

"Simply because the state has opened back up doesn't mean people have access to their jobs," she said.

Becker says the overdue rent payments put financial pressure on the owners, who he says have "resigned themselves to it."

But they have grown weary of the seemingly endless protections, which he noted were aimed at addressing a public health emergency and not meant to be permanent.

The state has been slow to distribute the $5.2 billion, and it's unlikely it can spend it all by June 30. The California Department Housing and Community Development report doesn't include the 12 cities and 10 counties that run their own rental a*sistance programs.

"It's challenging to set up a new, big program overnight," said a*semblyman David Chiu, a Democrat from San Francisco and chair of the a*sembly Housing and Community Development Committee. "It has been challenging to educate millions of struggling tenants and landlords on what the law is."

Landlords point to the state's rapid economic recovery as a reason not to extend the eviction moratorium much longer. California has added 495,000 new jobs since February. In April alone, California accounted for 38% of all new jobs in the U.S. This week, Newsom lifted all restrictions on businesses, heralding it as the state's grand reopening.

"We're getting back to normal," Carlton said. "It's time to go back to work. It's time to pay the rent."


While employment among middle- and high-wage jobs has exceeded pre-pandemic levels, employment rates for people earning less than $27,000 a year are down more than 38 percent since January 2020, according to Opportunity Insights, an economic tracker based at Harvard University.

"The stock market may be fine, we may be technically reopened, but people in low-wage jobs ó which are disproportionately people of color ó are not back yet," said Madeline Howard, senior attorney for the Western Center on Law and Poverty.

Some housing advocates are asking the state to keep the eviction ban in place until the unemployment rate among low-wage workers has dropped to pre-pandemic levels. It's similar to how state officials would impose restrictions on businesses in counties where COVID-19 infection rates were higher while those with lower infection rates could reopen more quickly.

Advocates say they were encouraged when Newsom told Univision earlier this month that he "definitively" wants to extend the eviction protections beyond June 30.

"We're cautiously optimistic," said Francisco Duenas, executive director of Housing Now California. "We definitely need these protections as part of our recovery."

They'd rather Cali do what Texas did to the people during that freak snowstorm. People have been programmed to look down on others' suffering while they have their pockets raided.

They shouldn’t be covering a penny for anyone who could afford to pay it but chose not to. For the people that needed it, they should be a*sisted. This sh*t isn’t free, it comes out of everyone’s pocket in one way or another.
