IMPORTANT! Educate yourself on the State’s current eviction protections.

From now until September 30, State law prohibits landlords from evicting tenants who are behind on rent due to a COVID-19 related hardship - but you must take certain steps to qualify for these eviction protections.  Visit the State of California’s “Housing is Key” website for detailed information on the state law, including what you need to do to avoid eviction.

Are you at risk of eviction?
To protect yourself from eviction, it is important to be aware of your rights.  You can get more information on Tenants' Rights and Fair Housing from the following agencies
