San Mateo County Temporary Moratorium on Evictions

A temporary moratorium has been placed on all COVID-19 related residential evictions for the non-payment of rent, in all 20 cities and unincorporated areas, in San Mateo County. The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to prohibit landlords from evicting tenants who are unable to pay rent due to the impacts of the COVID-19, through at least May 31, 2020. Tenants will have up to 180 days after the regulation’s end to pay delayed rents. The eviction moratorium is unique, in that board actions are generally restricted to unincorporated lands governed by the county. Paramount to the decision was to prevent exacerbating our homeless epidemic, and the threat to public health evictions would impose while under a statewide “Shelter at Home” order. San Francisco has passed a similar moratorium. The San Mateo City Council passed a moratorium prohibiting evictions on small businesses and nonprofit organizations.
