San Diego’s Strict Eviction Ban Ends
Updated: Aug 10
San Diego County renters are still protected from eviction until early October, but a stricter local law is expiring.
On Sunday, the San Diego County eviction moratorium, which was tougher than state and federal laws, will end. The local ban was controversial in preventing homeowners from moving back into properties if they had a renter and triggered an unsuccessful lawsuit.
Starting Monday, San Diego landlords could send 60-day eviction notices to renters if they intend to move back in or make significant repairs to their property. It also might be easier to get rid of problem tenants.
What landlords still can’t do is evict tenants who have lost money due to COVID-19 for not paying rent. A federal eviction ban has been extended to Oct. 3 by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, while California’s eviction moratorium, with similar rules to the federal ban, goes until Sept. 30.
