California issued a statewide moratorium on residential evictions for renters who cannot pay their rent because of COVID-19 related economic hardships. Marin County’s eviction moratorium remains in effect through July 31; residents have until September 30 to pay back rents.

Even if the moratorium is lifted at the end of July, eviction proceedings will not resume until the Judicial Council of California reverses the suspension it ordered on April 6. The order put the suspension in place until 90 days after Governor Newsom declares the state of emergency over.

If COVID-19 has impacted your ability to pay all or part of your rent, you should:

  • Explain your financial situation to your landlord and relay how much you are able to pay
  • Save all financial documents
  • Pay as much of your rent as you can

If your landlord is attempting to evict you for not paying rent and you took all of the above steps, contact a local legal aid provider.

You can find more California State financial assistance information at https://covid19.ca.gov/get-financial-help/#top.
