KPCC All Things considered: AAGLA Director Dan Yukelson Weighs In
Apartment Association Of Greater Los Angeles Director Dan Yukelson Weighs In On How Landlords Are Responding To the End Of Tenant Protections
After about three years of shielding tenants from evictions due to non-payment of rent, L.A. County is set to scrap renter protections tied to the COVID-19 pandemic. Housing advocates and renters had called for more help before March 31, when the COVID-19 protections are set to expire. But county leaders rejected a proposal on Tuesday intended to soften the blow for renters who could soon face eviction. After hours of debate, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors voted against setting up new protections tied to the ongoing homelessness emergency they declared earlier this year. The decision to end all emergency tenant protections marked a shift from previous votes, when county supervisors repeatedly extended policies aimed at helping renters stay housed. Executive Director of the Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles Dan Yukelson, joins AirTalk to discuss what’s in store for housing providers now that tenant protections are set to expire.
