San Jose Adopts Moratorium on Evictions Relating to Coronavirus
On Tuesday, March 10, 2020, San Jose city leaders adopted a temporary moratorium on evictions of San Jose tenants related to the Coronavirus. The San Jose eviction moratorium will remain in effect for at least thirty days. It will protect San Jose tenants demonstrating an inability to pay rent due to loss of income related to COVID-19 from eviction. The San Jose Coronavirus eviction moratorium will take effect within the next two weeks.
To qualify for coverage, San Jose tenants must provide the City of San Jose with documentation such as pay stubs, time cards, proof of medical care or quarantine, or notes from employers, schools, or doctors citing the Coronavirus. Additionally, job loss or job closure due to COVID-19 qualifies a San Jose tenant for eviction protections.
San Jose council members may provide public assistance to help affected tenants pay rent. Further, city leaders may extend the San Jose Coronavirus eviction moratorium to cover commercial leases held by small businesses.
