The State of California has extended residential eviction protections through Sept. 30, 2021. Tenants who were financially impacted by COVID-19 are protected from eviction for nonpayment of rent if the tenant provides their landlord with a signed declaration of financial distress. By Sept. 30, 2021, tenants must pay at least 25% of the rent due during the period of Sept. 1, 2020, through Sept. 30, 2021.
