On August 31st, 2020, the CAA approved Assembly Build No. 3088, known as the Tenant, Homeowner, and Small Landlord Relief and Stabilization Act of 2020. AB No. 3088 will go into effect immediately, but it does not relieve tenants, homeowners, or landlords of their financial and contractual obligations. Specifically, AB No. 3088 seeks to limit the harm created by the Covid-19 pandemic by preventing unpaid rental debt from serving as a justification for eviction or foreclosure during this unprecedented time.
If you are a California tenant, this bill may contain important provisions which impact you. If you are facing eviction, as a result of Covid-19 induced financial distress or some other reason, it is important for you to understand how AB No. 3088 impacts you, and what steps you can take to protect your housing.

On March 12, 2020 a proclamation of Local Emergency was ratified by the Oakland City Council due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 across the City of Oakland.
On March 27, 2020, the Oakland City Council adopted an ordinance imposing a moratorium on residential evictions, rent increases above the CPI amount of 2.7%, and prohibiting late fees throughout the Emergency. Moreover, the ordinance prohibits evictions based on nonpayment of rent that became due on after March 27, 2020 and throughout the Emergency, if the tenant suffered a substantial reduction of income or substantial increase of expenses due to COVID-19.
As of July 21, 2020 the eviction moratorium in Oakland has been extended through the end of the Local Emergency by the Oakland City Council.
Oakland's emergency rent and eviction moratorium only applies to tenancies regulated under the Oakland Just Cause for Eviction Ordinance and the Oakland Rent Adjustment Ordinance
