Forms are usually a member benefit.  However, in light of the current crisis, and all of the additional burden landlords are having to face to continue housing tenants, even without payment of rent, AOA has made these COVID-19 forms FREE to all landlords.

5/22/20 PASADENA REQUIRED NOTICE TO TENANTS | This written notice must be provided within 30 days of the ordinance to each rental unit or the landlord may conspicuously post and prominently display this written notice in the common areas of the property during the local emergency. Don’t delay – take action today!

*5/8/20 LOS ANGELES UPDATED FORM | COVID-19 Renter Protections Fact Sheet | The COVID-19 Renter Protections Fact Sheet (Protections Notice) is required to be given to each residential tenant by the landlord per Ordinance 186606. The Protections Notice must be given to tenants by May 27, 2020. Additionally, effective May 12, 2020, a landlord must also include the Protections Notice when serving a tenant a notice to pay rent or quit, a notice to terminate a residential tenancy, a notice to perform covenant or quit, or any eviction notice served during the local emergency period and for 12 months after the expiration of the local emergency period.
