Simi Valley Tenants Protected by Coronavirus/COVID-19 Eviction Moratorium
Simi Valley tenants are protected from evictions related to Coronavirus/COVID-19 income disruptions. During the Coronavirus/COVID-19 state of emergency, Simi Valley landlords cannot evict a tenant for nonpayment of rent due to financial disruption related to Coronavirus/COVID-19.
To qualify for eviction protections, Simi Valley tenants must:
- Demonstrate that the Coronavirus/COVID-19 has impacted them;
- Provide to the landlord a written notice of inability to pay rent due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 impact, with supporting documentation.
Under the Simi Valley Coronavirus/COVID-19 eviction moratorium, impacts include:
- Non-payment of rent due to substantial decrease in household income caused by layoffs, or a reduction in work hours; or,
- 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 Simi Valley tenants must eventually pay rent suspended under the law, the Simi Valley Coronavirus/COVID-19 eviction moratorium does not provide a repayment due date.
Simi Valley joins numerous other California cities that have, or will soon pass, Coronavirus/COVID-19 eviction moratoriums, including San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, San Jose, Santa Monica, Culver City, Stockton, Sacramento, San Diego, Alameda, Burbank, Pasadena, Vallejo, Inglewood, Glendale, Oxnard, and Los Angeles.
