Concord to drop rent-mediation program, rejects Day 1 ‘just cause’

The council on Feb. 11 also expressed an interest in increasing relocation assistance for no-fault evictions, as well as mandating that landlords offer one-year leases. A proposal to apply AB 1482’s “just cause” for eviction policies at the beginning of a tenancy, instead of after one year, failed to move forward.
