COVID 19 Pandememic

March 28, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order banning the enforcement of eviction orders for renters affected by COVID-19 through May 31, 2020.  The order prohibits landlords from evicting tenants for nonpayment of rent and prohibits enforcement of evictions by law enforcement or courts. 

Tenants who are having issues may call the Fair Housing Council of Riverside County at 1-800-655-1812. Callers will receive a call back within 24 hours.

A few words from our clients

Juanita at the Fair Housing Council was a godsend for a situation I had with my mom and sister who were being kicked out of their rental by property agency due to unsafe electrical hazard on the property. She really laid down the law on the property manager who was trying to do as little for my mom as possible and get away with not paying for temporary housing as mom was without power for a week. At the end of it all Juanita got my mom and sister their full security deposit back.

Very informative with useful information. I found out about another program they have that I could use in the near future.

Fair Housing was instrumental in helping me resolve a dispute with my property manager over repairs needed in my apartment. The professional and courteous intervention by my counselor, Craig, resolved the issue without any adverse effect on my relationship with the management.
