Ojai Coronavirus/COVID-19 Eviction Moratorium
Ojai tenants are protected from evictions related to Coronavirus/COVID-19 income disruptions. During the Coronavirus/COVID-19 state of emergency, Ojai landlords cannot evict a tenant for non-payment of rent due to financial disruption related to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.
To qualify for eviction protections, Ojai tenants must:
- Demonstrate that the Coronavirus/COVID-19 has impacted them;
- Provide to the landlord written notice of inability to pay rent due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 impact, with supporting documentation.
Under the Ojai Coronavirus/COVID-19 eviction moratorium, impacts include:
- Loss of income due to a Coronavirus/COVID-19 related workplace closure;
- Childcare expenditures due to school closures;
- Healthcare expenses related to being ill with Coronavirus/COVID-19;
- Caring for a member of a tenant’s household who is ill with Coronavirus/COVID-19; or,
- Reasonable expenditures that stem from government ordered emergency measures.
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.
Ojai tenants have six months to pay any deferred rent.
Ojai 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, El Monte, South Pasadena, Richmond, Emeryville, and Los Angeles.
