Can't pay rent? Don't pay rent!

The logic of not paying rent during the COVID-19 Pandemic

1. You can’t be evicted

On April 6th, 2020, the California Judicial Concil barred courts from starting hearings for evictions until 90 days after the state of emergency in California is ended.1

2. Tenants have the power

Because your landlord can’t start an eviction process, you are not legally required to provide any documentation or proof of income loss to your landlord. Notify your landlord within 7 days of your rent due date that you can’t pay. Don’t sign anything your landlord presents to you without first consulting a lawyer.

3. Food not rent

With millions unemployed or underpaid due to the pandemic, landlords understand that they’re forcing people to choose between rent and other necessities like food or medicine. Can’t pay? Don’t pay!
