National City to Discuss Additional Tenant Protections on Tuesday
While no ordinance is being voted on this coming Tuesday, February 20, the National City Council will discuss whether to direct city staff to create a local ordinance to provide additional protections to tenants who were impacted by recent flooding. SCRHA has reached out to councilmembers to discuss the issue. SCRHA believes that most of what is at issue is covered by state law and the County’s Eviction Moratorium and Rent Cap. It also appears that issues are isolated and not a problem city-wide. SCRHA will continue to work with the city and to educate property owners and tenants about their rights in the aftermath of flooding. SCRHA will notify members when the agenda and supporting materials are available for review.
