If you have a renter who needs to be evicted, you might not be able to file for one before 2020. After California’s state-wide rent control and “just cause” eviction law passed, many cities and counties have been rushing within the last few months to enact temporary eviction ordinances to prevent rental property owners from terminating tenancies before the new law goes into effect on January 1, 2020.
