Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention and Rental Assistance
On August 31, the state passed COVID-19 tenant and landlord protection legislation. Under the legislation, no tenant can be evicted before February 1, 2021 as a result of rent owed due to a COVID-19 related hardship accrued between March 4 – August 31, 2020, if the tenant provides a declaration of hardship according to the legislation’s timelines. The legislation also extends anti-foreclosure protections in the Homeowner Bill of Rights to small landlords. Details

On September 23 Governor Newsom signed an executive order to extend authorization for local governments to halt evictions for commercial renters impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic through March 31, 2021, and address a variety of issues in response to the pandemic. Details
