On August 31, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation that prohibits the eviction of tenants based on non-payment of rent until February 1, 2021. This bill is known as AB-3088 and it includes further legal requirements for landlords and tenants to follow.
On March 31, 2022, California legislatures approved AB-2179 extending the state’s eviction moratorium through June 30, 2022, for certain tenants who have applied for rental assistance on or before March 31, 2022.
On July 1, 2022, California's eviction moratorium expired, but some cities and counties have extended or passed their own eviction moratorium.
On July 18, 2022, California Attorney General issued a stern warning to landlords who attempt to evict tenants through unlawful measures such as changing the locks, shutting off water and electricity, or threatening tenants.
