Understanding California’s New
Statewide Rent and Eviction Control Law

If you are a Landlord in the "Golden State" you've no doubt heard that how you deal with your tenants and rentals has come under attack. Last year, California voters decisively rejected a statewide ballot initiative that would have expanded rent control statewide, however with AB 1482 Sacramento has gone against the will of the people and feels it knows best. California now joins Oregon as the only places that CAP Rent increases Statewide. This Law takes effect Jan. 1st, 2020 and you need to be aware of its implications.

This Discussion will cover:

  • Who is covered by the new law?

  • What are the limits on rent increases under the new law?

  • What are the just causes for eviction under the new law?

  • What are some of the Best practices for landlords

  • Is the New Law Retroactive? (Yes you will be surprised)
