Residential EvictionThe Burbank Eviction Ordinance (20-2, 942), which protected against both residential and certain commercial evictions ended on September 30, 2020. However, there are some protections for certain, eligible tenants as described below.
State of California AB 2179 - California’s COVID-19 Eviction Moratorium Update:
Legal protections against eviction based on nonpayment of rent due to COVID hardship has expired as of June 30, 2022, for qualifying residential tenants. Starting July 1, 2022 the notice requirements and special eviction procedures originally enacted by the COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act (CTRA) and the COVID-19 Rental Housing Recovery Act (Recovery Act) no longer apply.
Los Angeles County Updated COVID-19 Tenant Protection Resolution:
As of July 1, 2022, low-income households in Los Angeles County will be protected from eviction for nonpayment of rent under Phase II of the County’s COVID-19 Tenant Protections Resolution.
To qualify for this protection, a tenant must be unable to pay rent due on or after July 1, 2022, and their total household income must not exceed 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI). (For example, household income for a family of two cannot exceed $76,250, and for a family of four cannot exceed $95,300.)
Tenants must also notify their landlord that they are unable to pay rent within 7 days of rent being due. (Fillable self-certification forms available in English and Spanish.)

City of Burbank Commercial Eviction Order Update:
Eviction protections for nonpayment of rent have expired. However, anti-harassment and retaliation protections continue during the protection period, as well as personal guarantee protections for certain commercial tenants under the Los Angeles (LA) County Order. Please review the LA County order for more details. As with the residential tenant projections, these commercial tenant protections may apply to certain Burbank commercial tenants. However, that is to be determined by the courts.
Eligible commercial tenants that were protected from eviction via the City commercial eviction moratorium have six (6) months from the expiration of the City’s commercial order (September 30, 2021) to pay back due rent. The period ended March 31, 2022.
