On March 13, 2020, San Francisco Mayor enacted a moratorium on evictions of tenants who are unable to pay rent due to impacts from the COVID-19 health crisis. This moratorium will last 30 days, and it could be extended further if the need is there. Also, this moratorium is not just for residential tenants, but also includes commercial tenants with a license to operate in San Francisco that have less than $25 million in annual gross receipts.
Given the current health climate and the shelter-in-place orders in all the Bay Area counties, many people are out of a job or have their hours drastically reduced, due to the drastically reduced demand on certain non-essential businesses. If you are a residential or commercial landlord or tenant, and you need legal advice during these unprecedented times, feel free to reach Attorney Sam Wu at his office number 415-886-1703 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During this crisis, the Law Office of Sam Wu will remain close in an effort to flatten the curve to give our health care workers a fighting chance. I hope you will do the same to support our health care workers by staying home whenever possible as to not put any further unnecessary stress on the system.
Thanks and please stay safe and healthy.
