Commercial Eviction Protection for Nonpayment of Rent Expired September 30

The Oakland City Ordinances on the local commercial eviction moratorium conformed with the Governor's most recent Executive Order, which expired on Thursday, September 30, 2021. The protections that prevented commercial evictions of small businesses and non-profit organizations for nonpayment of rent ended on that date. Back rent may be due in full depending on the payment plan or other agreement negotiated between the tenant and landlord. The moratorium on residential evictions remains in effect until the end of the Local Emergency as declared by Oakland City Council.
Through grants from the City of Oakland, the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area (LCCR) continues to provide commercial lease negotiation assistance to small business owners.
