LA County FAQ


WHAT IS THE L.A. COUNTY TEMPORARY EVICTION MORATORIUM?

The Los Angeles County Temporary Eviction Moratorium, effective March 4, 2020, through October 31, 2020*, unless repealed or extended by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, places a Countywide ban on evictions for residential and commercial tenants, including mobile home 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, or unauthorized occupants or pets – if related to COVID-19.

*Note: As of October 1, 2020, the County’s Moratorium will no longer apply to residential tenants facing eviction for nonpayment of rent due to COVID-19 related financial hardship.

HOW DOES THE TEMPORARY MORATORIUM WORK?


RESIDENTIAL TENANTS

Through September 30, 2020, Residential Tenants (including mobile home renters) covered under the County’s Moratorium must notify their landlord, through a self-certification within 7 days after rent is due, unless extenuating circumstances exist. Between October 1, 2020 and January 31, 2021, Residential Tenants must comply with the certification requirements established in AB 3088 in order to be protected from eviction. If a residential tenant’s inability to pay rent is not directly related to COVID-19, they may be protected under the CDC Order and should comply with the certification requirements under that order.

COMMERCIAL TENANTS

Commercial tenants are responsible for providing notice to their landlord if they are unable to pay rent due to financial impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic within seven (7) days after rent is due, unless extenuating circumstances exist. Tenants with nine (9) employees or fewer may self-certify their inability to pay rent to their landlord, either orally or in writing. Tenants with 10 or more, but fewer than 100, employees will need to provide written documentation that demonstrates inability to pay rent due to financial hardship related to COVID-19 to their landlord. If they are able to do so, Tenants are encouraged to pay partial rent during the Moratorium.
