1. AB 1482 Rent Control. As many know, California recently passed one of the most restrictive state‑wide rent control laws in the nation. The purpose of the law is to provide additional protections for tenants through the limitation of rent increases and through the enactment of just cause evictions, subject to exceptions.
2. AB 5 Independent Contractors. While AB 5 started out as a potential hurdle for the real estate community, the codification of Dynamex ended in victory thanks to C.A.R.
3. AB 68, 670, 881 Accessory Dwelling Units. In furtherance of the California legislature’s attempts to combat the housing crisis, the legislature passed AB 68, 670, and 881 to address Accessory Dwelling Units (“ADU”).
4. AB 1110 Rent Notice Increases. In the event that AB 1482 does not apply to a particular property, the newly enacted AB 1110 requires a 90 day notice if the landlord of a month-to-month tenancy increases the rent by more than 10% of the rent charge to the tenant annually.
5. AB 2343 Unlawful Detainer and Notice Periods. Similar to AB 1110, AB 2343 is another noticing law for property managers. However, AB 2343 is already effective.
6. SB 18 90 Day Notices. The Senate bill acts to eliminate the previous sunset date of the notice law which requires tenants to be provided with at least 90 days’ notice before the termination of a tenancy if the property is foreclosed.
7. SB 329 Housing Discrimination. SB 329, in application, requires landlords to accept Section 8 housing from an otherwise qualified tenant.The new Senate Bill aims to expand discrimination protections on the basis of source of income and aims to provide additional protection for tenants who rely on assistance to obtain housing.Under SB 329, a landlord who discriminates against a tenant receiving housing assistance, such as Section 8, will be subject to additional liability.
8. SB 969 Battery Backups for Garage Doors. SB 969 is unique in that it became effective July 1, 2019. Thus, it is already effective. Under SB 969, automatic garage doors must include a battery backup to provide power in the event of a power outage.
