Gov. Gavin Newsom recently extended the state’s eviction moratorium to Sept. 30. It was set to expire June 30. Now many Californians will have more time to find a place to live and financial assistance to pay off their rent.
San Diego County’s eviction ban is more strict than what the state has put in place: Landlords cannot evict tenants if they want to move back into their home, and evictions for “just cause” reasons are very limited. It also has a rent cap of 4 percent for current tenants. It expires in August.
The county’s eviction ban is being challenged in federal court but the judge in the case has not made a decision. The judge is expected to take up the case again in late July.
