A limited Bay Area eviction ban remains in place, but for how long?
Although California’s eviction moratorium ended last month, many Alameda County tenants are still covered by a local ban that has ignited a growing fight between landlords and county officials.
Alameda County and Oakland eviction bans now are among the stiffest local renter protections remaining in the state. Although landlords in most other parts of California can evict residents in certain limited cases, Alameda County property owners cannot remove tenants for being behind on rent as long as the county remains under a local health emergency. And county leaders have indicated no plans to lift the emergency designation.
