CAA publishes compliance papers for relocation laws in Pasadena, Long Beach


The California Apartment Association this week published a pair of “Industry Insight” papers to help rental housing owners comply with new relocation-assistance ordinances in the cities of Pasadena and Long Beach.

In Pasadena, a relocation allowance for tenants in good standing took effect July 13.

The ordinance expanded the eligibility of displaced tenants to receive a relocation allowance and moving expenses from the landlord. Moreover,  it increased relocation amounts and protections for tenants then the property is sold to a new owner who then increases the rent by more than CPI+5%, serves a termination notice, or evicts the tenant.

For more information, CAA members may access the Industry Insight with this link or the Pasadena button at the bottom of this article.

In Long Beach, the city’s Tenant Relocation Assistance ordinance took effect today, Aug. 1. This ordinance will require landlords in affected units to pay relocation assistance to tenants who decide to move after rent increases of 10% or more and when tenants receive certain types of termination notices.

On or before Aug. 30, 2019, landlords must provide all existing tenants with this one-page information sheet prepared by the city.  CAA has created a form that provides the disclosure that is required. CAA has also created an addendum that must be included in all leases entered into after Aug. 1, 2019.
