Alameda County Temporary Commercial Eviction Moratorium:

  • The Moratorium covers all commercial tenants/properties in the unincorporated area. It says that landlords may not evict commercial tenants for not paying rent while the Moratorium is in effect.
  • It does NOT remove a tenant's obligation to ultimately pay rent that is due. And it doesn't disrupt any voluntary payment agreements that landlords and tenants have made or will make.

There are 3 key provisions in the Commercial Eviction Moratorium:

  1. Expiration Date: The Moratorium will expire on December 30, 2020, unless the Governor extends the State's emergency order. In that case, the Moratorium will expire 90 days from the date the Board adopted the ordinance (4/21/2020).
  2. Noticing Requirements: If a tenant receives a "Notice of Termination" from a landlord, the tenant must notify the landlord that they have experienced a "Qualifying Loss" and must provide documentation (described below) within 15 business days after the rent is due. That documentation is supporting claims of inability to pay due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Examples of documentation include: a statement signed under penalty of perjury that the inability to pay is due to a Covered Reason for Delayed Payment as defined in the Moratorium; documents showing reduced business income; and correspondence by a business owner citing COVID-19 as a basis for reduced business hours or business closure.
  3. Any financial information provided to the landlord shall be held in confidence, and only used for evaluating a tenant's claim.

  4. Repayment Period: Tenants have 90 days after the date the Moratorium expires to pay rent that has not been paid. Also, landlords cannot charge late fees or assess other penalties for unpaid rent.
