California Assembly Bill - AB 1436
Assemblyman David Chiu (Democrat - San Francisco) introduced AB 1436 which forces landlords to defer rent for 15 months after the state of emergency is lifted. Tenants could go with over 2 years without paying rent and do you really believe any tenant will catch up after not paying for 2 years?

Residential Rent Reduction & Other Protections for Tenants

California Senate Bill - SB 939
SB 939, sponsored by Senator Scott Wiener (Democrat-San Francisco), would make it illegal for landlords to terminate a tenancy, forces re-negotiation of lease terms and allows the tenant out of the lease if an agreement cannot be reached.
For more information visit the ICSC website which provides a summary of the bill and has an easy way to express your opposition.
Even if you do not own commercial real estate, we recommend you help oppose the bill because it sets a precedence of giving all leverage to tenants while penalizing landlords.
