City Imposes Temporary Moratorium on COVID-19/Coronavirus-Related Evictions

Effective immediately, the City of Moorpark has imposed a temporary moratorium on evictions for non-payment of rent by residential or commercial tenants impacted by the COVID-19/coronavirus crisis.  The moratorium does not relieve tenants of liability for unpaid rent.  The moratorium will initially be in effect until May 31.

“As a result of the public health emergency and the precautions recommended by public health authorities, many Moorpark residents and businesses are experiencing, or will soon experience, a sudden and unexpected loss of income, leaving them vulnerable to eviction,” said City Manager Troy Brown.  “The moratorium is intended to avoid unnecessary housing and commercial tenant displacement, to prevent housed individuals from falling into homelessness, and to protect the City’s vulnerable businesses.”

The full moratorium, as well as current COVID-19/coronavirus information is available on the City’s website at www.moorparkca.gov/coronavirus.
