The Merced City Council recently gave final approval to the Central Valley’s first anti-eviction law. The law seeks to stop evictions of innocent tenants after foreclosure. It took effect several weeks ago. Realtors have been trying to repeal the law but have so far been unsuccessful.
This is a game changer for Merced tenants and the entire community. Under the new law, tenants will be able to stay in their homes, rather than being callously tossed into the street by banks that care nothing about creating unnecessary homelessness, vacancy and blight.
Community members who are interested in the new law are welcome to attend this educational forum on Tuesday, January 17 at 5:30 at the Merced Arts Center, 645 W. Main Street, Merced, CA. Representatives from Tenants Together and Central California Legal Services will be present to answer questions and discuss the new law. There will also be fact sheets for Merced tenants on their rights under the new law.
