The city of Mountain View has extended its local urgency ordinance suspending evictions for nonpayment of rent for residential tenants.The May 29 city council action extends the eviction protections through Aug. 31.
The action also extends the payback period, which is now 180 days instead of 120 days from the expiration of the urgency ordinance. It extends to mobile home lot renters and can be mediated and enforced locally.
To get started, tenants must notify landlords of their inability to pay rent within seven days after rent is due and provide proof of hardship from COVID-19 related impacts within 14 days after rent is due. Impacts include decrease in household income caused by layoffs or reduction in work hours.
