Here’s a summary of the new laws that have been passed this year. Some of them still waiting for Governor Newsom’s signature.
AB 1482 by Assembly Member Chiu
Rent Increases: Cap of 5% + cost of living or 10%, whichever is the lower of the gross rental rate, over the course of any 12-month period. AB 1482 includes Just Cause and No Fault Evictions. It does not include single-family homes or condos owned by individuals.
SB 330 by Sen Nancy Skinner
The California Legislature has approved Senate Bill 330, the Housing Crisis Act of 2019. SB 330 will accelerate housing construction in California by cutting the time it takes to obtain building permits, limiting fees on housing, and barring local governments from reducing the number of homes that can be built.
