Assembly Bill 3088: COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act of 2020
The Santa Barbara County eviction moratorium is scheduled to expire on September 30th , 2020, unless the Board of Supervisors extends it. A new bill, AB 3088, was signed by Governor Gavin Newsom on August 31st, 2020 temporarily amending State Law regarding evictions. It is important to note that this bill does not prevent all evictions from occurring, nor does it excuse non-payments of rent.
IVTU has put together a COVID-19 Resource Guide. To view this guide and other resources regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, click here.
This guide includes information and FAQs about lease termination, subleasing, unemployment, food distribution locations, information for undocumented students and families, mental health resources, and more.
The Isla Vista Tenants Union believes all tenants should be treated with respect and fairness.
We envision an educated, proactive, and united tenant group, and hope for a community supportive of its residents.
