  • County of Santa Clara Eviction Moratorium Includes Small Businesses: Santa Clara County has issued an Ordinance covering March 24 through to May 31, unless otherwise extended, ordering that small businesses located in San Jose and across the County renting or leasing real property for commercial, business, income-producing, or otherwise non-residential use, cannot be evicted for nonpayment of rent if such business suffered substantial loss of income due to COVID-19. Refer to County Ordinance NS-9.287 for further details. The County’s ordinance relies on U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) definitions of small businesses based on industry. Find detailed information and an FAQ on the Santa Clara County moratorium page.
