14 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit Legislation Pulled from Assembly Judiciary Committee 2011

The power of the pen is mightier than the sword. Please see the legislative update below provided by the California Apartment Association on March 9th 2011 regarding proposed legislation that would extend the 3 day notice to pay rent or quit period to 14 days.

With over 750 letters submitted by CAA members in opposition to AB 265 (D-Ammiano), legislation that proposes to change the 3 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit to a 14 Day Notice, the bill has been pulled from the Assembly Judiciary Committee. It had been scheduled for March 15. We don’t doubt, however, that the author will ask that it be reset at a later time. Watch for updates on this legislation, and be prepared to write again.

Thank you to those of you who wrote letters and especially to those CAA members who told their stories about the reality of the 3 Day Notice and tenant hardship. A majority of you told us how you had worked with tenants to provide them additional time to stay in the unit when they unexpectedly came upon hard times. Those stories added an important element to the real life situations that you deal with every day. Thank you.
