Jamie Sternberg, Esq.
Effective August 28, 2018, California AB 2219 requires residential landlords to accept rent payments through a third party, if the payor provides a signed acknowledgment stating that they are not currently a tenant of the premises and that acceptance of the rent payment does not create a new tenancy with the third party. It amends Civil Code §1947.3.
