Temporary Eviction Moratorium
The Los Angeles County Temporary Eviction Moratorium, effective March 4, 2020, through June 30, 2021*, unless repealed or extended by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, places a Countywide ban on evictions for residential and commercial tenants, including mobilehome space renters. Under the County’s Moratorium, tenants may not be evicted for COVID-19 related nonpayment of rent, as well as no-fault reasons, nuisance, denying entry to a landlord, or unauthorized occupants or pets – if related to COVID-19.
*Note: Between October 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021, the County’s Moratorium will not apply to residential tenants facing eviction for nonpayment of rent due to COVID-19 related financial hardship, as they are covered under the state’s eviction moratorium.
More information on Temporary Eviction Moratorium can be found at dcba.lacounty.gov/noevictions.
Note: On Jan. 29, Governor Gavin Newsom signed California Senate Bill 91 to extend California’s Eviction Moratorium and its protections through June 30, 2021. Our department and other LA County agencies are assessing this new law and will publish additional information here when it becomes available.
