San Leandro Coronavirus/COVID-19 Eviction Moratorium
San Leandro tenants are protected from evictions related to Coronavirus/COVID-19 income disruptions. During the Coronavirus/COVID-19 state of emergency, San Leandro landlords shall not endeavor to evict a tenant, including mobilehome tenants, for non-payment of rent due to financial disruption related to Coronavirus/COVID-19.
To qualify for eviction protections, San Leandro tenants must:
- Demonstrate that the Coronavirus/COVID-19 has impacted them;
- Within 30 days after the date that the rent is due, provide the landlord with written notice of inability to pay rent due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 impact, with supporting documentation.
Under the San Leandro Coronavirus/COVID-19 eviction moratorium, impacts include:
- Contracting Coronavirus/COVID-19;
- Caring for a household or family member who has contracted Coronavirus/COVID-19;
- Income disruption via layoff, wage or hour reduction, work closure, business closure, or other income reduction resulting from Coronavirus/COVID-19;
- Complying with a government or health authority order to stay home, self-quarantine, or other similar order;
- Substantial out-of-pocket medical expenses; or,
- Child care needs arising from school closure due to Coronavirus/COVID-19.
Supporting documentation likely includes, paystubs, time cards, proof of out-of-pocket medical expenses related to Coronavirus/COVID-19, proof of medical care or quarantine, employer or school notes, or doctors citing the Coronavirus/COVID-19.
Although San Leandro tenants must eventually pay the deferred rent, landlords may not charge a late fee for rent delayed under the San Leandro Coronavirus/COVID-19 eviction moratorium. San Leandro tenants have 90 days following the expiration of the San Leandro Coronavirus/COVID-19 eviction moratorium to pay any deferred rent.
