California Enacts Remaining Parts of Homeowner Bill of Rights


On September 25, California Governor Jerry Brown signed the three outstanding bills proposed as part of the state’s Homeowner Bill of Rights. First, under Assembly Bill 2610, purchasers of foreclosed properties must provide ninety days’ written notice to quit before removing the tenant or subtenant from the property. Except in limited circumstances, tenants or subtenants holding possession of a rental housing unit under a fixed-term residential lease entered into before the purchase at foreclosure is permitted would have the right to possession until the end of the lease term. Second, Senate Bill 1474 allows the state attorney general to use a statewide grand jury to investigate and indict the perpetrators of financial crimes involving victims in multiple counties. Finally, Assembly Bill 1950 extends the statute of limitations for prosecuting mortgage related crimes from one year to three years.
