Inglewood tenants are protected from evictions related to Coronavirus/COVID-19 income disruptions. During the Coronavirus/COVID-19 state of emergency, Inglewood landlords cannot evict a tenant for non-payment of rent due to Coronavirus/COVID-19 financial disruptions.  Additionally, the Inglewood Coronavirus/COVID-19 Eviction Moratorium includes a 45-day moratorium on all no-fault evictions.

To qualify for eviction protections, Inglewood tenants must:

  1. Demonstrate that the Coronavirus/COVID-19 has impacted them;
  2. Preemptively provide their landlord with written notice of inability to pay rent due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19, with supporting documentation.

Under the Inglewood Coronavirus/COVID-19 eviction moratorium, impacts include:

  1. Contracting Coronavirus/COVID-19;
  2. Caring for a household or family member who is sick with Coronavirus/COVID-19;
  3. Layoff, loss of hours, or other Coronavirus/COVID-19 economic impact resulting in income reduction;
  4. Compliance with a government precautionary measure, such as an order to stay home or self-quarantine;
  5. Extraordinary out-of-pocket expenses related to Coronavirus/COVID-19 that exceed 1/3 of the tenant’s rent; or,
  6. Child care needs arising from Coronavirus/COVID-19 school closures.

Permissible supporting documents likely include employer letters citing the Coronavirus/COVID-19 as a reason for adverse impact, paystubs from before and after the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, or bank statements showing the tenants financial position before and after the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, or letters from a home-bound child’s school providing notice of closure due to Coronavirus/COVID-19.

As stated above, the Inglewood Coronavirus/COVID-19 Eviction Moratorium includes a 45-day moratorium on all no-fault evictions.  No-fault evictions presently suspended include:

  1. Owner move-in or relative move-in evictions;
  2. Ellis Act evictions;
  3. Demolition evictions; and,
  4. Substantial repair evictions.
