The Eviction Moratorium expires on April 29th, 2023 in Alameda County!
Both California’s and Alameda County’s COVID-19 health emergencies ended on February 28, 2023. Alameda County’s eviction moratorium ordinance, enacted to protect tenants impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, ends 60 days after the end of the County health emergency. Legal evictions may proceed starting on April 30, 2023 and tenants who do not pay rent from April 30th onward are at risk of eviction.
Tenants with unpaid rents accumulated during the moratorium may not be evicted for such unpaid rents but landlords may still pursue unpaid rent in small claims court.
Tenants who violated their lease for anything other than nonpayment of rent are subject to eviction and not protected within the nonpayment of rent clause in the County’s Eviction Moratorium
