CA Rent Control

Recently the CA Legislature has passed AB1482  – The Tenant Protection Act of 2019.  ***

This is a nightmare for a lot of investors. The dreaded rent control bill which puts a cap on rent increases annually to 5% plus CPI or 10% whichever is lower. 

It also makes it more difficult to evict tenants. Since this is a statewide bill, it would apply on all areas not previously governed by any rent control, such as Elk Grove.. 

But don’t panic yet, because the bill does not apply to Single Family Residences and Condos and newer multi family buildings (less than 15 years old).

Please contact James Tan at 916-230-5250 or email BethanyRealEstate@Gmail.com for further information as to what investors should do next 

These are the exemptions from the bill, click here to see the whole text .
