AB 1482 – State Rent Caps

AB 1482 took effect on January 1, 2020.

AB 1482 imposes rent caps on some residential rental properties in California. It also imposes “just cause” eviction requirements that apply after residents have occupied the unit for a certain period of time.

In cities that already have a rent control ordinance in place (under the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act), AB 1482 extends rent caps to some additional housing that is otherwise not covered under the existing local ordinance.

The law exempts certain properties from the rent caps and just-cause requirements, including (1) most single-family homes and condominiums, and (2) housing built within the last 15 years. In cities that already have a rent control ordinance in place (under the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act), AB 1482 extends rent caps to some additional housing that is otherwise not covered under the existing local ordinance.
