Updates and Announcements
Eviction moratorium extended through September 30, 2022 in unincorporated Marin
On Tuesday June 21, 2022, the Marin County Board of Supervisors adopted a Resolution to bar evictions of residential tenants for nonpayment of rent due to the on-going impact of the Public Health Emergency arising from COVID-19 from July 1 through September 30, 2022 (Board Packet). This Resolution applies only to renters in unincorporated Marin.
Other Marin jurisdictions have also adopted an eviction moratorium extension, including: Town of Fairfax (adopted 06/15/22), City of San Rafael (adopted 06/21/22), City of Larkspur (adopted 06/23/22), City of Novato (adopted 06/28/22), and Town of Corte Madera (adopted 08/16/22).
The Resolution reestablishes the local eviction moratorium previously adopted by the Board that was superseded by the State Legislature adopting Assembly Bill 2179, Assembly Bill 3088 and Senate Bill 91, set to expire on June 30, 2022. See the panel below for more details.
