Eviction Moratorium in SF

*Updated 8/27/21* The Supreme Court has thrown out the latest CDC eviction ban.

*Updated 8/3/2021* San Francisco’s eviction moratorium is set to last through September 30, 2021. Though the city had earlier this June passed an extension through December, California’s new COVID-19 relief bill, AB 832, overrides local pandemic eviction protections and prevents city legislators from adding new ones until April of next year. The California moratorium still applies even with the new CDC eviction ban extension, issued August 3rd, which will expire in 60 days on October 3, 2021.

In addition to pausing evictions based on nonpayment of rent, the city also offers help with paying back and forward rent. For more information on emergency tenant protections in the city, including how to obtain legal advice, please visit https://sf.gov/information/about-covid-19-emergency-tenant-protections and our COVID-19 quick guide on rent debt: https://calcountylawlib.libguides.com/covid19_quick_guides/rent_debt.
