San Diego Tentatively Votes to Extend Rent Payback Period

The San Diego City Council this week approved a proposal to extend the deadline for residents to make up rent payments missed due to the pandemic until December 30.

It will need to pass a second vote and gain the mayor's approval before it will be official, however. The city has an eviction moratorium in place until September 30, prohibiting landlords from evicting renters and small businesses that are unable to cover their rent or lease payments due to the pandemic. The moratorium does not forgive all rent obligations, but gives tenants additional time to pay it.
