City Adopts Temporary Eviction Moratorium
The City Council adopted a temporary ordinance Nov. 6 that prohibits tenant evictions without just cause.
South Pasadena, like many of its neighboring cities, has seen a recent increase in tenant evictions in advance of Jan. 1, 2020, when a state cap on rent increases is set to take effect.
The ordinance places an immediate moratorium on evictions without just cause until Jan. 1. It sets in place provisions of the state law, AB 1482, in advance of Jan. 1.
