EVICTION PROTECTIONS

OVERVIEW & PURPOSE

The County of Riverside is subject to the Governor Newsom’s Executive Order. You may  refer to the order via this link: (EO-N-37-20). The Executive Order builds on the Governor’s previous Executive Authority authorizing local jurisdictions to halt evictions for renters impacted by the pandemic EO-N-28-20

 

HAVE ALL EVICTION PROCEEDINGS STOPPED IN CALIFORNIA? 

Yes. For more information please review the summary from Western Center on Law and Poverty on the new rules issued by the California’s Judicial Council: Judicial Council Rules during Shelter in Place

 

DOES THE GOVERNOR’S EVICTION MEAN I DON’T HAVE TO PAY MY RENT? 

NO!!! The eviction moratorium does not waive or forgive your rent payment. You should pay what you can to your landlord, because you will eventually have to pay all rent due. 

WHAT IF I AM NOT ABLE TO PAY MY RENT DUE TO LOSS OF INCOME DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC? 

  1. You should contact your landlord in writing that you are not able to pay your rent due to loss of income due to COVID-19 before the rent is due. (See attached sample letters)
  2. You should keep copies of all correspondence with your landlord.
  3. Tell your landlord why you were unable to pay your rent. 
  4. Provide documentation for why you were not able to pay your rent.  
  5. In the event you receive an eviction notice you should seek legal help. 

For an easy How-To Video of the protections that may apply for California tenants during COVID-19 can be in this video from Legal Services of Northern California ( en Espanol ).
