Landlord Tripled the Lease Price

Q.

My husband owns a small Muffler/repair shop in Glendale and his lease is up at the end of June.  As of July 1st, the owner has leased the whole center to one person who was supposed to be subleasing the shop to us, but until this week no one had approached us for the renewal.  Finally, my husband was able to talk to xxxxxxx for the sublease and the guy asked for a rent price that is triple the amount my husband pays now.  IS THIS ALLOWED DURING THIS DIFFICULT DAYS?

I sent an email to the landlord telling him that we are trying to figure out our next steps and due to COVID-19 I am not sure if we will be able to find a place and move the business but the landlord seems careless and he made it very clear that he doesn’t care and we have to be out on June 30th.  I don’t know what to do and how to move forward.

Can someone please help us understand our options, guide us on how to get a month to month extension until businesses are open and we can find a place to move?  Can the landlord just kick us out during this pandemic?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

You should get the advice of a tenant-landlord attorney.  You may also want to contact the city to see if they have any resources.
