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.
