The past 18 months have been very difficult, and we understand the challenges many landlords are facing. At the Shelhamer Group we wanted to assist you in understanding the most up-to-date information regarding the City of Los Angeles COVID-19 eviction moratorium and the end of the State’s renter protections. In this article breaking news for Los Angeles landlords, we hope to offer you some vital information and open the doors with you to dialogue and our services. We’re here just ask the Shelhamer Group.

You may have heard that many of the State’s eviction protections are scheduled to end on September 30, 2021. However, the City of Los Angeles’ COVID-19 Emergency Renter Protections continue in effect past September 30th. City Ordinance No. 188606 prohibits evictions due to the inability to pay rent for circumstances related to the pandemic for twelve months after the City’s Declaration of Emergency expires. The City’s Declaration of Emergency is still in place until at least until October 24, 2021, and will be renewed each month while the local pandemic emergency conditions persist. 


The 12-month repayment period for tenants to pay any outstanding rent due to the COVID-19 economic impact will begin when the City’s Declaration of Emergency is lifted.  The earliest date that the eviction moratorium can expire is October 24, 2022. The latest possible date under California law is May 1, 2023. Information will be updated on the Housing Department’s website as information changes.


We strongly encourage landlords to apply to recover rent arrears through the website for rental assistance that covers 100% of unpaid rent for low-income tenants for 18 months beginning April 2020. As of now, there is no deadline to apply for rental assistance; the program will continue until funds run out. The State of California currently has available funding.  



For information on a pending Emergency Rental Assistance application filed by April 30th 2021, with the City of Los Angeles, please email with your application number or contact the City’s Emergency Assistance Call Center at (833) 373-0587.

LAHD has developed a robust set of FAQs to assist tenants and landlords alike throughout this period. Visit the Renter Protections page at for additional information. This information will continue to be updated as this process develops. We appreciate your cooperation during this time and hope that we can work together to assist you and your tenants. Should you have any questions or need assistance, we encourage you to visit our website or call our Landlord-Tenant Hotline at (866) 557-7368.


As of July 1, 2021, a landlord or a qualifying family member can move into a single-family home, mobile home space, condominium unit, duplex, or triplex (collectively “units”) if the property was purchased on or before June 30, 2021, and if they meet the following criteria:
