Commercial Eviction Moratorium Extended through June 30, 2021

By Hoge Fenton | 04.15.2021 | Firm Post

This Urgency Ordinance amends Ordinance No. NS-9.287, as extended by Ordinance No. NS-9.288, by extending the time period during which past-due rent must be repaid to 12 months and specifying repayment intervals.

For small business tenants who qualify for protection under the Santa Clara County’s ordinance, the eviction moratorium has currently been extended through June 30, 2021. Protected small business tenants have up to 6 months after the moratorium expires or terminates to repay at least 50% of the past-due rent, and up to 12 months after the moratorium expires or terminates to repay in full the past-due rent.
