The situation surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) is continually evolving. SCRHA is following the guidance issued by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health. We are canceling the events and classes for the month of March. Please follow us on Twitter for real-time updates that impact our members.

WHITE PAPER - GUIDANCE FOR DEALING WITH COVID-19
We have just added "Guidance for Dealing with COVID-19" to our library of White Papers. We have compiled a variety of resources and put them in one document that will be updated regularly as information, guidance, and resources continue to evolve.

Communicating with Residents Regarding Rent Payment Situation
Because of the differences in the Moratorium Regulations linked to this page, the SCRHA has not been able to create a sample letter for you to use when communicating to residents about rent payments. Instead, we encourage you to reach out to residents proactively and assess their situation. Here is some sample language that might help, particularly in conjunction with Form 298 mentioned on this page too:
Sample Language: If you have experienced a job layoff or business slowdown that has impacted your family’s income due to COVID-19 pandemic and cannot pay your rent in accordance with the terms of your Rental Agreement, please notify the rental office of your circumstances prior to your due date, but no later the seven days after it. We cannot forgive any rent due, but we will work in good faith with you. We encourage you to pay what you are able and we will ask you to sign a Payment Agreement outlining how you will pay the balance of the rent. You will need to provide proof that your circumstance relates to the COVID-19 pandemic to the rental office at some point, so we suggest that you gather that information as well (pay stubs, bank statements, notices of layoff or furlough, etc.).

We will be offering virtual meetings going forward for all committee meetings and we are exploring doing the same for classes.
If you are currently registered for upcoming classes, please look for an email with additional instructions for your class or bookmark this page for SCRHA updates.
With social distancing measures in full effect and many people working from home, this is a great opportunity to refresh your knowledge on issues that owners and/or property managers frequently encounter.
As a member of SCRHA and NAA, you can access these online classes through Visto.

The Innovations in Rental Housing Education Conference & EXPO is now on August 25, 2020. We will now be in Hall C (previously Hall B). The layout and booth locations remain the same. All Exhibitor and Attendee registrations will carry forward to the new date.
As noted above, we are postponing the Maintenance Mania competition. Unfortunately, the National Apartment Association has informed us that by moving our event to later this year, our competitors may no longer be eligible for the June national competition at Apartmentalize in Boston, as our event will take place after that date. That said, NAA also informed us that our participants may qualify for the 2021 NAA National Maintenance Mania Competition.
