The California Apartment Association is urging its members to speak out against a proposed ban on no-fault evictions in the city of San Diego. The City Council is scheduled to take up the matter at its Monday, April 4 meeting.

The proposal, announced by Council President Sean Elo-Rivera, threatens an outright ban or limit on:

  • An owner or their family members from moving in.
  • Substantial remodels or rehabilitation of a property.
  • Withdrawal of a residential rental structure from the rental market.

As an amendment to the city’s current eviction moratorium, the no-fault eviction ban would also expire 60 days after the end of the declared state of emergency from COVID-19.

The city’s state of emergency has no defined termination date, therefore the ban on no-fault evictions may be in effect in perpetuity.

Tell the San Diego City Council that you oppose the no-fault eviction moratorium.
