Legislative ALERT



Assembly Bill 2343 (Chiu) rewards tenants who fail to pay their rent or who remain in wrongful possession of a rental unit by delaying the unlawful detainer (UD) process by a minimum of three weeks. Specifically, it increases the rent default 3-day pay or quit period to 10 days; increases the cure or quit period for lease violations other than rent default (i.e., illegal subletting, continually disturbing other tenants, or other illegal activity) from 3 days to 10 days; and increases a tenant-defendant’s answer period after a Unlawful Detainer complaint is served from 5 days to 14 days.

Reasons To Oppose:

It increases the number of weeks and months rental property owners must provide rent-free housing to rent-defaulting tenants

It frustrates the purpose of the summary UD process

It protects lease-breaching tenants at the expense of all others
