On March 19, 2020, the Governor announced help for homeowners that are impacted by financial hardships of the COVID-19 crisis.  In this announcement he indicated that financial institutions will provide major financial relief for millions of Californians suffering financially as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak through a 90-day grace period for mortgage payments.  Financial institutions also agreed not to negatively impact credit reports as a result of accepting payment relief.  Find more information here.

Governor Gavin Newsom on March 27, 2020 issued an executive order banning the enforcement of eviction orders for renters affected by COVID-19 through May 31, 2020. The order prohibits landlords from evicting tenants for nonpayment of rent and prohibits enforcement of evictions by law enforcement or courts. It also requires tenants to declare in writing, no more than seven days after the rent comes due, that the tenant cannot pay all or part of their rent due to COVID-19.
