A “no fault” eviction moratorium in the city of San Diego has expired, although significant protections for COVID-related nonpayment still apply.

The no fault eviction moratorium took effect in May over the California Apartment Association’s strong objections. The association, however, helped secure an end date of Sept. 30, which the city did not extend.

While in effect, the no fault eviction moratorium extended noticing periods and prohibited no fault evictions for all residential tenants, regardless of their COVID-19 hardship status, with limited exceptions for owner-move ins, taking an entire rental property off the market and complying with a government or court order.
