This afternoon, Chip Rerig, Carmel’s City Administrator, acting in his authority as our Director of Emergency Services, signed Order No. 20-1 Staying Evictions in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Among other characteristics, this order:

  • Applies to both commercial and residential properties
  • Prohibits evictions (due to the COVID-19 pandemic) as long as the both the state and the city are under declared states of emergencies, including any extensions at the state level (Our emergency exists until it is withdrawn)
  • Allows for a 60 day period after one or both declarations are withdrawn, during which evictions are still stayed and during which tenants may make back rent payments.
