Sonoma County tenants, landlords face challenges as home evictions resume in pandemic
October 20, 2020
Significant job losses early in the pandemic made it difficult for thousands of Sonoma County residents to pay rent, and they are still struggling in the absence of additional government aid. State and federal mandates had protected tenants affected by the coronavirus, physically or financially.
However, renters now can be evicted for causes such as lease violations after a statewide ban expired at the end of August. Some local property owners are taking action to do just that.
If you are facing eviction or foreclosure, you can put an immediate stop to that process and protect your family through bankruptcy.

COVID-19 Eviction Defense Ordinance
On March 24, 2020, the Board of Supervisors took action to approve the COVID-19 Eviction Defense Ordinance, effective immediately and for the duration of the declared Local Emergency in Sonoma County.
This ordinance creates a legal defense for tenants who live anywhere in Sonoma County and are being evicted due to non-payment of rent and who can demonstrate financial losses due to lost work or medical expenses resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.
The ordinance requires that tenants who use this defense share that information with their landlord to support claims for any prospective mortgage relief.
The Ordinance will continue for 60 days after the end of the emergency. Rent is not forgiven for tenants with a hardship, but landlords must work with tenants on a rent repayment program that will allow tenants to stay housed during this emergency.
