To All Landlords and Tenants in San José:
Today the San José City Council implemented a temporary moratorium on residential evictions for non-payment of rent by tenants affected by the federal government shutdown.
The moratorium is effective immediately and applies to all rental properties in San José.
The moratorium covers tenants under the following circumstances:
- Employees of federal agencies and federal contractors who are not being paid as a direct result of the shutdown;
- Holders of federal housing vouchers when the responsible federal agency fails to make standard, routine payments; or
- Beneficiaries of federal rent subsidies when the responsible federal agency fails to make standard, routine payments.
The moratorium will last for 90 days from today, or 30 days after the end of the federal government shutdown, whichever is sooner.
If you have questions about this moratorium, please contact the San José Housing Department at (408) 975-4480 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
