4/10 Moratorium on Evictions

4/10 Moratorium on Evictions

The City Council strongly believes that during this crisis both residential and commercial tenants should be protected from eviction resulting from nonpayment of rent due to the financial impacts.

Fortunately, there are three such measures recently put into effect:

  1. The County of Sonoma’s residential eviction moratorium, which applies in Sebastopol as well as the other cities in the County;
  2. Governor Newsome’s Executive Order N-37-20 which provides similar protection throughout the entire state, and
  3. Recent action by the Judicial Council which prevents the filing of both residential and commercial eviction actions, as well as judicial mortgage foreclosure actions in the State.
 

The City will make more detailed information on these measures available in the future. Tenants faced with an action appearing to be in violation of this protection should seek legal advice immediately.
