Coronavirus - Eviction Protection


Link with FAQs and visuals in Spanish.


Translation of a few.

Can I be evicted during the State of Alarm?
NO. With the aim that no one is left out, the Government has regulated certain protections for those groups that due to their economic vulnerability as a result of the COVID crisis may be at risk of being evicted (for not being able to pay the rent).

Evictions are suspended for a maximum period of 6 months from April 2, 2020.
The suspension request (of the eviction or the request period) should not be submitted until the alarm state ends.

Who cannot be evicted?
Those who pay a rent (but are now unable to pay full or partial rent) and are unemployed due to the Covid-19 crisis, those who have suffered an ERTE, those who have had their working day reduced for child or elderly care, and to those who are affected by other circumstances involving a substantial loss of income.

If I don’t live alone, but with my family, can they evict us?
If you are in a situation of economic vulnerability due to the health crisis, no.


You need to file paperwork that accredits your situation with the Juzgado. You also need a report from Social Services so we recommend that you contact them to ask for their help with the accreditation.
