The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors today took action to continue to shield renters hit hard financially by the pandemic. The voted today to:

  • Extend through August eviction protections for residential tenants
  • Explore a pathway for renters and community groups to buy properties facing default — an effort to keep properties out of the hands of large corporate landlords.

Note: There will be no eviction protections at all for publicly traded and multinational commercial tenants.
