More Landlord-Tenant Legislative Changes On The Horizon

In Sacramento our local Assemblyman, Phil Ting, has proposed a total stop to evictions state-wide during the current COVID-19 emergency. This new law would allow the court to determine if the tenant’s plight is related to the virus caused economic conditions. It provides a 25% rent reduction for up to a year (AB 828). 

Oakland Legislative Changes

Locally, Oakland is considering several dozen amendments to its rent and eviction control laws as an emergency response to the ongoing stress. The proposals include rent increase limitations, extra roommate allowances (not withstanding lease prohibitions about subletting), reduction in late fee allowances, elimination of exemptions for newly constructed buildings, and much more. 

Landlord-Tenant Legislative Changes for San Francisco

We are studying these amendments, and those in San Francisco and other local communities, very closely.
