Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About A.B. 1482:

The New Statewide Rent Control and Tenant Protection Law

Despite the overwhelming voter turnout against 2018’s Proposition 10, Assembly Bill 1482 was passed by the State’s Legislature and became effective as of January 1, 2020.  This new law imposes statewide rent “caps” and just-cause eviction rules throughout the State of California.

During this webinar, we will cover what this law means for rental housing providers, including the imposed rent “caps,” just-cause eviction rules, exemptions from the law’s rent regulations and tenant protection rules, “at-fault” and “no-fault” tenant evictions, required relocation payments, and required new disclosures. While the law is relatively new and certain issues were not fully addressed and explained by the Legislature, this presentation will provide a well-needed overview of this complicated and often confusing new law, and its restrictions and requirements.

Important Planned Topics Include:

  • What kind of properties are exempt from A.B. 1482?
  • What constitutes an “at-fault” and “no-fault” eviction?
  • May I still charge market rate rents when my tenant vacates for an “at-fault” or “no-fault” eviction?
  • May I evict a tenant to move in a member of my family or make improvements at my property?
  • What relocation fees (aka extortion payments) are required under A.B. 1482?
  • What rent “caps” are imposed under A.B. 1482?  What if the new CPI isn’t available yet?
  • What are the new required lease disclosures?
  • When and how can you evict a problem tenant?
  • Q&A session with Tracey Merrell, the Managing Attorney of Education for Kimball, Tirey & St. John, LLP.
