STATE AND COUNTY EVICTION PROTECTIONS

Updated Feb. 17, 2021

As of Feb. 9th, 2021, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors passed a local eviction ordinance limiting allowable evictions to only those that pose an imminent risk to health and safety, and an owner taking a rental property off the market.

 

The state of California has passed SB 91, which dictates how tenants are protected from eviction due to nonpayment of rent. 

 

Please see the fact sheet below from our partners at Legal Aid to help answer questions about your rights in this time.

You can also USE THIS FLOWCHART to figure out if you’re protected under current law.
