The health and safety of our clients and agent partners is our top priority. We urge you to follow your state and local safety protocols, and adapt your business with measures such as these:
**Avoid open houses until the virus wanes and/or local officials allow you to hold open houses again.
**If in-person showings are allowed in your market, encourage clients to drive themselves and accompany them by driving yourself separately.
**Make sure homes are cleaned thoroughly before going on the market and in between showings, particularly high traffic surfaces such as door handles.
**Before an in-person showing, have your sellers open all doors and cabinets — anything a potential buyer might want to see inside — so that the buyer doesn’t have to touch handles and doorknobs.
**Clients should be offered hand sanitizer before and after showing a home.
**Ask anyone involved in an in-person showing to wear masks and gloves.
**Consider making more frequent use of virtual appointments and showings.
Gov. Newsom has signed into law SB 91, a bill that provides financial assistance to qualifying housing providers and tenants of up to 80 percent of the unpaid rent accrued since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID relief legislation passed by Congress with bipartisan support and signed into law in December set aside $25 billion for direct financial relief to rental property providers through the states. SB 91 establishes the rules for distributing those funds in California based on the framework established by the federal stimulus bill. C.A.R. worked closely with California Members of Congress to ensure that direct assistance to rental property owners was included in the overall legislation.
Additionally, SB 91 extends the current statewide eviction moratorium law until June 30, 2021. The state eviction moratorium parallels the federal eviction moratorium initiated in September 2020, recently extended through March and which will likely be extended further by Congress. C.A.R. anticipates that the passage of SB 91 will prevent other, more restrictive state moratorium proposals from moving forward, including AB 15 (Chiu), which C.A.R. opposes.
SB 91 had no declared opposition. C.A.R. took a formal “neutral” position on SB 91, as did other rental housing organizations, reflecting the extraordinary and unique circumstances caused by COVID-19.
C.A.R. will be preparing a Legal Q&A on the new law to follow soon. Further regulations are expected once the law is passed to address the particulars of the distribution of funds the law calls for.
President Biden announced the extension of forbearance and foreclosure relief programs. Homeowners with loans through the Federal Housing Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture or the U.S. Department of Veterans can now enroll in forbearance through June 30 to delay payments for up to 18 months. Borrowers with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can delay their payments for up to 15 months, but they must enroll by end of February.
