Summary as passed House: (all summaries)

Initial hearings on a summons for unlawful detainer; amendments of amount requested on summons for unlawful detainer; immediate issuance of writs of possession in certain case judgments; written notice of satisfaction rendered in a court not of record. Provides that, at the initial hearing on a summons for unlawful detainer, upon request of the plaintiff, the court shall bifurcate the unlawful detainer case and set a continuance date no later than 120 days from the date of the initial hearing to determine final rent and damages. The bill requires the court, on such continuance date, to permit amendment of the amount requested on a summons for unlawful detainer in accordance with the notice of hearing, evidence presented to the court, and the amounts contracted for in the rental agreement. The bill further clarifies types of judgments for which a writ of possession may be immediately executed but specifies that an eviction pursuant to such a writ shall not be executed (i) until the expiration of a tenant's 10-day appeal period or (ii) if a tenant perfects an appeal. The bill removes certain requirements for a written notice of satisfaction of judgment rendered in a court not of record.
