When tenants want to place clotheslines outside, landlords have plenty of discretion.

Under Assembly Bill 1448, they can require that clotheslines be kept in a private area and even dictate the look of the drying devices.

To help rental property owners properly handle resident requests, CAA has published a background paper and an addendum. Both forms, available only to CAA members, can be accessed here.
