 6            The Judge of the court may stay the execution of any judgment or order.

 7   Code of Civil Procedure Section 918(a).

 8            In situations where justice requires a stay of execution, the court may

 9   do so without the consent of the adverse party for a period of up to 40 days.

10   Code of Civil Procedure Section 918(b). California Residential Landlord-

11   Tenant Practice, California Education of the Bar (1986), §7.208, p.674. This

12   40 day figure is derived from the provision that the court may stay execution

13   for a period which extends for 10 days beyond the last date on which a notice

14   of appeal could be filed. Code of Civil Procedure Section 918(b). The last

15   date on which a notice of appeal can be filed from a superior court unlawful

16   detainer judgment is 30 days after the notice of entry of judgment is mailed

17   by the clerk or opposing party, or 90 days after the entry of judgment,

18   whichever is earlier. California Rules of Court, Rule 122(a). Therefore, the

19   judge can stay the execution of an unlawful detainer judgment for 40 days

20   after the notice of entry of judgment is served.

21            In Industrial Indemnity Co. v. Levine (1975) 49 Cal. App.3d 698, 700,

22   122 Cal.Rptr. 712, the court remarked, “A stay of execution granted under

23   Code of Civil Procedure Section 681(a) (now Code of Civil Procedure Section

24   918(a)), is used to allow the judgment debtor time to gather his resources so

25   that the judgment may be satisfied without unnecessary hardship.”




                                              2
 1         In Medford v. Superior Court (1983) 140 Cal.App.3d 236, 240; 189

 2   Cal.Rptr. 227,230, the court stated that a stay of execution may be

 3   conditioned on the tenant’s payment of rent accruing during the period of the

 4   stay, but not on payment of back rent:

 5         “The possibility of loss of back rent on accrued damages is not a

 6   consequence of granting such relief to the tenant. The landlord gains

 7   sufficient protection from the deposit of the contract rent as it becomes

 8   due.” Id at 240.
