California’s latest proposal for fair housing regulations includes improvements secured by the California Apartment Association, but also a couple items of concern.

On July 7, the California Fair Employment and Housing Council voted to submit its final fair housing regulations to the Office of Administrative Law. These regulations cover source of income, discriminatory advertising, and reasonable modifications.

During a yearlong process, CAA persuaded the FEHC to drop a provision that would have required landlords to accept guarantors on behalf of tenants. CAA also secured removal of a provision that would have required landlords to consider aggregate income of all tenants proposing to reside together, rather than simply requiring landlords to apply the same rules to married and unmarried persons as required by California law.
