The enactment of the Tenant, Homeowner, and Small Landlord Relief and Stabilization Act of 2020 (Assem. Bill 3088; Stats. 2020, ch. 37) changes the practice and procedures relating to all residential unlawful detainer actions from now until January 31, 2021, and for a longer period for actions based on unpaid rent or other charges due at any time between March 1, 2020, and January 31, 2021. The Judicial Council recently approved new and revised forms to assist courts in determining how to properly proceed with actions under the new law, and to assist parties in understanding their rights and responsibilities.

The revised Answer—Unlawful Detainer (form UD-105) was approved prior to circulation for comment so that it would be available for defendants on October 5, 2020, the date when courts were authorized to proceed under the new law with actions based on failure to pay rent or other charges. The Civil and Small Claims Advisory Committee is now circulating the revised form and seeking comments following its approval. The committee will recommend further revisions to the council based on the comments, if appropriate.

The Criminal Law Advisory Committee proposes three new mandatory forms and an optional information sheet to be used to petition the court for termination of sex offender registration, indicate a district attorney’s response to the petition, and make appropriate court orders. The state Department of Justice requested the Judicial Council’s assistance with forms to implement relevant parts of the Sex Offender Registration Act (Sen. Bill 384; Stats. 2017, ch. 541).
