Commercial tenants struggling to pay their rent in Los Angeles County are getting a reprieve.
The County Board of Supervisors voted on Tuesday to extend its eviction moratorium on commercial tenants through January.
The board did not extend the eviction moratorium for residential tenants, explaining it didn’t have the authority to supersede state protections. California’s statewide eviction moratorium for residential tenants is set to expire on Thursday. Los Angeles also has a residential eviction moratorium in place, which will expire after the city ends its “local emergency” declaration.
