How Will I Pay Back the Rent?

Even if you are currently protected from eviction for nonpayment of rent, you will eventually be required to pay back the rent you owe.

Tenants protected under the moratorium will be given six months from the date that Mayor Breed’s Order expires to pay back rent.

Mayor Breed’s Order remains in effect until September 30, 2020, unless extended.
