The two bills (AB 2610 and SB 1473) are the latest of the Homeowner Bill of Rights package.
Under the bills in Ventura County, new owners of a rental property, who bought the Ventura County home in foreclosure, must give tenants 90 days notice before starting an eviction and must honor any fixed-term leases entered into before the sale.
The Ventura County, California bills passed Thursday would extend the protections statewide through the end of 2019.
The foreclosure crisis impacted more than 200,000 California renters in 2010 alone including Ventura County residents.
“Tenants are unsuspecting victims in the mortgage and financial crisis,” says AG Harris. “They pay rent on time but may suddenly find themselves forced to move. These bills will give tenants important rights and fair treatment when they live in a rental that is under threat of foreclosure.”
