Anaheim: Emergency Eviction Moratorium

  • The Anaheim City Council on March 24 approved an emergency moratorium on residential and commercial evictions for those impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.

    As an urgency ordinance, the moratorium takes effect immediately and goes through May 31, 2020, with options for extensions by the City Council.

    The ordinance prohibits landlords from evicting residential renters and business tenants who are unable to pay rent due to loss of work, reduced income or health reasons related to coronavirus.

    It would prevent eviction for:

    • Falling sick from coronavirus, also referred to as COVID-19
    • Caring for a family member who is sick
    • Layoff from work, loss of hours or income from coronavirus shutdowns or modifications
    • Compliance with California’s stay-at-home order for nonessential jobs and workplaces
    • Medical self-isolation
    • Missing work to care for children
  • Tenants can qualify for a delay in rent payments under Anaheim’s ordinance. They must notify and provide proof of the impacts of coronavirus to their landlords in advance of their rent payment due date.

    Those who qualify would have 120 days after the expiration of the ordinance to pay back any rent they owe. The repayment plan would either be by agreement between the tenant and landlord or a default plan of four equal monthly payments.
