Oxnard tenants are protected from evictions related to Coronavirus/COVID-19 income disruptions. During the Coronavirus/COVID-19 state of emergency, Oxnard landlords cannot evict a tenant for non-payment of rent due to financial disruption related to Coronavirus/COVID-19.

To qualify for eviction protections, Oxnard tenants must:

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

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

  1. Non-payment of rent due to substantial decrease in household income caused by layoffs, or a reduction in work hours; or,
  2. Substantial out-of-pocket medical expenses.

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, bank statements showing the tenants financial position before and after the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, or medical bills related to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

Although Oxnard tenants must eventually pay rent suspended under the law, the Oxnard Coronavirus/COVID-19 eviction moratorium does not provide a repayment due date.
