Of the six pieces of California’s proposed “Homeowner Bill of Rights”, the first one passed the State legislature. The portion, known as the “anti-blight” bill, imposes a $1,000.00 fine per day on all property owners that fail to maintain foreclosed homes. This is something that has become an issue around the country as banks have struggled or refused to properly maintain the appearance of homes on which they have foreclosed.
The existing provisions of Cal. Civ. Code § 2923.3, which impose the $1,000 per day fine, are set to expire on January 1, 2013. The newly-enacted law extends the operation of the law indefinitely.
