Have Questions About Renting In LA? Watch This To Learn More
About the event
Beginning in March of 2020, renters in the L.A. area negatively impacted by COVID-19 were able to postpone their monthly payments. As of March 31, this is no longer the case.
Many renters are still struggling with the effects of the pandemic — one recent U.S. Census Bureau survey found that about 246,000 households in the L.A. metro area are behind on rent. Housing advocates have warned that the change in policy is likely to produce a wave of evictions and increase the number of people experiencing homelessness.
