City of San Diego No-Fault Termination Ordinance Pending Second Reading

As SCRHA reported Tuesday night, the San Diego City Council approved an ordinance to restrict No-Fault Termination of Tenancy through September 30, 2022 or 60 days after the local emergency ends, whichever is sooner. The ordinance still must get approval at a second reading, after which it will go into effect in 30 days. Councilmembers Joe LaCava and Raul Campillo recused themselves because they own rental property, and Councilmember Jennifer Campbell was not in attendance due to illness. Councilmembers Sean Elo-Rivera, Stephen Whitburn, Monica Montgomery Steppe, Marnie von Wilpert, and Vivian Moreno voted in favor of the ordinance, with Councilmember Chris Cate opposed. SCRHA is still working to clarify some components of the ordinance that are poorly defined and could create ambiguity in the courts. We will notify members when the second reading is scheduled.
