AB 1482: California just cause eviction protections and rent caps
With the passage of this landmark legislation, California created rent cap and just cause protections for a large portion of tenancies. There are a lot of questions in the community and among cities’ staff about what the law is, how it works and what implications there may be. Project Sentinel has gathered a group of representatives from the legislative sector, local city staff, and housing provider and tenant groups to discuss the law and some of these questions.
