Know Your SB 1079 Rights

April 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

CRC is co-hosting a workshop on Thursday, April 15 from 1 to 2 p.m. with the Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) on SB 1079, a new law introduced last year by Sen. Nancy Skinner to reduce land grabs resulting from foreclosure auctions.

SELC helped add a significant new section to the bill that could be a huge win for tenants, land trusts, local governments and real estate cooperatives. In brief, if a home is not purchased at auction by someone who will be living in the home (i.e., if it’s purchased by profiteers who plan to flip it or manage it as a rental), then there will now be a 45-day hold period in which tenants, potential owner-occupants, nonprofits, cooperatives, and others can purchase the property by either matching or exceeding the auction’s winning bid.

This Know Your Rights Workshop will cover the following issues:

  • History of foreclosures in California;
  • History of SB 1079;
  • Case Studies and Strategies;
  • Next Steps to Fighting Corporate Land Grabs; and
  • How to buy foreclosed homes.

ASL interpretation and automated closed captioning will be provided.

Presenters for this Know Your Rights Workshop are: Teshone Jones of the California Reinvestment Coalition; Alejandra Cruz, Christine Hernandez, Hope Williams and Tia Katrina Taruc-Myers of the Sustainable Economies Law Center; Amy Hines-Shaikh of the California Community Land Trust Network; Leslie Gordon of Urban Habitat
