    I own an industrial building in Los Angeles and the tenant has not paid rent in 4 months. Do not know what to do anymore. The tenant is open for buisiness and has never closed even during the pandemic. Would welcome any and all suggestions.

    There's nothing you can do until the moratorium is lifted at the end of October.

    OP mentioned on FA that the tenant was a manufacturer. Then the thread disappeared from there.

    You could file an eviction action, if and whenever the courts reopen.

    Otherwise, well, you know.

    On the other forum, OP stated he was a LA Landlord. LA (Los Angeles) has a moratorium, city & county.

    The Los Angeles County Temporary Eviction Moratorium, effective March 4, 2020 to September 30, 2020, implements a Countywide ban on evictions for residential and commercial tenants, including mobile home space renters.

    The moratorium may be extended by the L.A. County Board of Supervisors on a month-to-month basis.
