Local bans on residential evictions extended into August, but may leave business tenants behind

Original post made on May 30, 2020

Cities and counties throughout California are racing to extend emergency rules prohibiting landlords from evicting tenants for nonpayment of rent due to the coronavirus pandemic.

If the government wants to help tenants with their rent, then the government should pay the rent to the landlords. It is not fair to landlords to make them suffer uniquely the results of a social policy, even a good social policy. This is a shared responsibility that should fall to governments.

The government has provided monies for many kinds of businesses during this pandemic. Including landlords is only just.

Am I missing something?

You should update the story: The Governor's executive order was signed Friday, May 29, extending the eviction protection through July 28: Web Link

This article is a total fail!

1 - Zero reference to Palo Alto (and this is Palo Alto Online?)
2 - Say till August, but we all know order says July 28th

No to the writer, please look at your title.
Get it?

Now, if a renter in Palo Alto, when (who, what, when, why - hello?) is it we are to pay rent 'BY LAW' please, as this article only made this all worse!

Please detail what Supervisor and how the law is referenced for us to inform also landlords too.

Horrible!

This article is weeks old and was published prior to action taken by the Board of Supervisors on June 2, when it passed an extension of the moratorium to July 28 to be consistent with the state's timeline. The Aug. 31 date was floated by supervisors as a potential alternative in the event that Newsom allowed the order to expire.
