City Council Ends Eviction Moratorium
The City Council adopted the Ad Hoc Committee on COVID-19 Recovery and Neighborhood Investment Report and recommendations. The City eviction moratorium is slated to end Jan. 31, 2023. Tenants who have missed payments since March 2020 would have to meet two repayment deadlines.
Under state law, tenants will have until Aug. 1, 2023 to pay back missed rent between March 1, 2020, and Sept. 30, 2021. Under the city’s moratorium, tenants would have until Feb. 1, 2024 to repay rent accumulated from Oct. 1, 2021 to Feb. 1, 2023. In rent-controlled apartments, rent increases will also be allowed to resume beginning February 2024.
The City will provide relocation assistance for evictions deemed no-fault evictions. There are also protections against no-fault evictions for unauthorized pets or residents who aren’t listed on leases until Jan. 31, 2024. The report also explores initiating just-cause rules, requiring specific reasons for landlords to evict tenants in all units, not just those under rent control.
