COVID-19 – Long Beach City Counsel extends Coronavirus eviction ban through Sept. 30, 2020

The City Council voted unanimously at its Tuesday, Aug. 4, meeting to extend its current eviction ban through Sept. 30.

The prohibition on evictions due to nonpayment applies to both residential and commercial tenants in Long Beach, CA if a renter or business owner has lost income because of the COVID-19 crisis and is unable to pay rent.

Renters must pay back any missed rent from June 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020 by the end of July 2021. Unsure if the July 2021 deadline is extended to unpaid rents to May 31, 2020 which are due by the end of November 2020.

Tenants must prove to their landlords that they cannot afford to pay their rent within three days of receiving an eviction notice; the tenant must also provide documentation proving they have had a substantial loss of income due to the coronavirus or the government’s response to it.
