A total of 65 new coronavirus deaths were reported by Los Angeles County public health authorities on Wednesdya, July 8 — a further reflection of a surge across the region that is once again taxing the ability to test for the virus and again forcing hospitals to scale up to meet demand.

Coronavirus: Will tenants, landlords, taxpayers split the bill for unpaid rent?

Mounting debts for unpaid rent during the pandemic could upend the state’s apartment industry — throwing tenants out on the street and choking small landlords unable to make mortgage payments. But an unprecedented state Senate plan is moving forward to give tax breaks to landlords for forgiving rents and halting evictions, and allow tenants 10 years to repay back debt to the state. And the estimated cost to taxpayers? Up to $10 billion over the life of the program. “We’re trying to stabilize the...

Judge upholds Hawaii’s pandemic quarantine on arriving travelers

HOA Homefront: More myths about mold (Part 2)

Will foreclosures explode once the moratorium is lifted?

Remember the nursery rhyme refrain, “We all fall down?” The incredible uptick of COVID-19 is like a raging California wildfire. Earlier this week Dr. Anthony Fauci surmised the U.S. could experience 100,000 new coronavirus cases per day. With the U.S. population at roughly 337 million, it would take just over one year for everyone in the U.S. to get this virus if its trajectory doesn’t change. Horrifying!
