Limits On Evictions in Unincorporated Areas
The Board of Supervisors suspended the authority of any landlord to commence residential or commercial property eviction of tenants based on the following through May 31, 2020, unless otherwise terminated or extended:
The basis of the eviction is non-payment of rent, or a foreclosure, arising out of a substantial decrease in household or business income or substantial out-of-pocket medical expenses; and
The decrease in household or business income or the out-of-pocket medical expenses describe above was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, or by any local, state, or federal government response to COVID-19, and is documented.
Board of Supervisors also requests all financial institutions in the County holding home or commercial mortgages, including banks, credit unions, government-sponsored enterprises, and institutional investors, to implement an immediate moratorium on foreclosures and related evictions when the foreclosure or foreclosure-related eviction arises out of a substantial decrease in household or business income, or substantial out-of-pocket medical expenses, which were caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, or by any local, state, or federal government response to COVID-19.
