The rent control initiative adopted by Pasadena voters in the November election took effect today,  Thursday, Dec. 22, 2022, however, the California Apartment Association has filed a lawsuit challenging the measure and will seek an injunction to stall its full implementation while the case is litigated.

Even if the court does not allow for an injunction, it will take time for the measure to be fully implemented. Several key provisions, however, are triggered by the measure taking effect. Most notable is the rollback back of rents to 2021 levels for units subject to the rent restrictions, and the application of strict eviction protections.
