The City of Culver City issued the Thirty-Fourth Supplement to Public Order and Eighth Amended Implementation Measures regarding the Commercial Tenant Eviction Moratorium (CTEM). The Order and related Implementation Measures reflect the following changes and clarifications to the CTEM:
- Extension of moratorium until the termination of the local emergency.
- Effective April 1, 2021, tenants must pay 25% of current rent due in order to receive the protection of the moratorium. If the landlord and tenant already have another payment arrangement in place for current rent, that agreement will supersede this condition.
Effective March 1, 2021, the definition of Commercial Tenant will be modified as follows:
- “Commercial Tenant” means any individual, agency, association, branch, corporation, estate, group, partnership, or other entity or organization entitled by Lease or by sufferance, to the use or occupancy of a Commercial Property, provided that such person holds a valid business license issued by the City of Culver City, unless exempt from business license requirements under the Culver City Municipal Code.
- Effective March 1, 2021, “Commercial Tenant” shall not include a multi-national company, publicly traded company, or a company that, together with that company’s parent, subsidiary, affiliated, and related companies, employed 200 or more employees on March 20, 2020.”
Effective June 1, 2020, “Commercial Tenant” shall not include a multi-national company, publicly traded company, or a company that employed 200 or more employees on March 20, 2020.
