The 2020 Rental/Lease Agreements have been updated to comply with AB 1482, which imposes rent caps and just cause eviction restrictions on many properties in California. The Agreements have also been revised to include many of the addenda that were previously separate documents.

• AB 1482 Disclosure of Exemption – Single Family Homes and Condos
• AB 1482 Applicability of Rent Caps and Just Cause
• AB 1482 Owner Move In Provision

In November 2017 the San Jose City Council voted to replace the City’s nearly forty-year-old rent control law with a new rent control ordinance. The new Apartment Rent Ordinance (ARO) took effect on December 29, 2017. The new ARO retained the 5% annual rent increase previously permitted, but also adopted many new requirements.

In May 2017, the San Jose City Council also adopted new eviction protections, called the Tenant Protection Ordinance (TPO), which apply to all rent-controlled units in San Jose (and some non-rent-controlled units).

This recorded webinar will address the key information rental housing providers in San Jose need to know about the new ARO and TPO, including: 

• Types of permitted rent increases
• Rent increases that require pre-approval from the City
• Limits on fees and charges
• Notices required by law
• Requirements for tenant buyout agreements
• Eviction protections

In today’s political climate, all communities are vulnerable to rent control, which has emerged as a popular approach to address rising rents. In 2016 and 2017, CAA fought rent control ballot measures in seven Northern California cities. While CAA defeated rent control in most jurisdictions, rent control won passage in two cities. Efforts are now underway to place rent control before voters in several cities in both Northern and Southern California.

With this rising threat of rent control, California’s state law limiting rent control, the Costa-Hawkins Act, is more important than ever. The Costa-Hawkins Act protects property owners of all sizes from radical, local rent control measures.

Speakers: 
Debra Carlton, CAA Senior Vice President, Public Affairs
Whitney Prout, CAA Policy & Compliance Counsel

This recorded webinar will address the key features of rent control ordinances and how they affect rental housing owners, as well as how the Costa-Hawkins Act protects rental housing owners from the most extreme forms of rent control.

Developing appropriate screening criteria is critical for all rental housing providers. A rental housing provider who establishes appropriate screening criteria should find, more often than not, that they end up with tenants who pay rent on time and who adhere to house rules and policies. Consistent application of lawful screening criteria, including renting to the first applicant who qualifies, will also help protect against claims of discrimination.

This webinar will discuss the categories of information that should and should not be considered as part of the tenant screening process, and the types of policies rental housing providers should have in place to deal with common issues in the screening process, including:

• Setting an appropriate income standard
• Considerations for credit requirements
• Evaluating rental history
• Avoiding criteria that violate fair housing laws

Acting as a landlord in California can be a risky business. 

Landlords can face claims of wrongful eviction, discrimination, and personal injury occurring at the property, not to mention costs due to property damage caused by natural disasters, burglary, and vandalism. If the landlord has one employee or more, he or she must also maintain workers compensation insurance. Landlords without or with insufficient insurance can be faced with catastrophic business interruption and financial loss. 

Learn about the various types of insurance available to you as a rental housing provider, including recommendations for renters insurance, and the options provided through the CAA Value Insurance Plan.

• Rules that prohibit children-specific activities (such as playing or riding bikes)
• Age restrictions for use of amenities
• Occupancy standards

This recorded webinar will address the types of policies that are most likely to pose a familial status fair housing issue, and how to develop policies that effectively serve legitimate interests of housing providers without violating fair housing laws.

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program, commonly referred to simply as “Section 8,” is the primary federal housing subsidy program in the United States. Under the program, a portion of the rent is paid to the landlord directly by the local housing authority on behalf of the participating tenant. The tenant then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.

There are both benefits and costs to landlords who participate in the Section 8 program. It’s important to understand how the program works, particularly given that a new California law removes the ability of landlords to “opt out” from participating in the program. 

This webinar will provide an overview of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program, including:

• Effect of new state rent control and anti-discrimination laws on program participation
• How the program is structured
• Special screening requirements for Section 8 applicants
• Procedures for rent payments and increases
• Rules for terminating the tenancy

Research shows that we all harbor unconscious biases which can impact the decisions we make in rental housing, including how we respond to disability accommodation requests. Our unconscious choices can lead to unintentional discrimination and violations of fair housing laws. The good news is that enhanced awareness and training can create an inclusive culture that identifies and helps eliminate hidden biases, thereby reducing ones fair housing liability

This webinar will cover:
• Unconscious bias
• Microaggressions
• Fair housing essentials
• And much more

If you follow the news, you probably notice that California appears to be in a constant state of emergency. Whether due to fires, severe storms, earthquakes, or pandemics, both the Governor and local officials have declared countless states of emergency over the last several years. Those emergency declarations trigger a provision of the state’s penal code, called the state’s anti-price gouging law, which limits how much rental housing providers can increase rent. And those limitations apply not only to your existing tenants but also to new tenants even in units that are new to the rental market. A violation of this law is a misdemeanor and subject to significant penalties.

Checking credit is a pillar of the screening process, and for good reason. An applicant’s credit is part of the criteria used to evaluate whether they will pay the rent on time. Because of this, it is important for rental housing providers to know what information they can and cannot obtain from credit reports, as well as to understand their legal obligations that come with using consumer credit reports. The use of consumer credit reports is highly regulated under federal law, and there are many potential traps for the unwary.

This webinar will cover the key information rental housing providers who use consumer credit reports need to know, including:

• What is and is not included on a credit report
• Recent legal developments relating to credit reports
• When and how to provide legally required adverse action notices 
• Obligations under the federal “Red Flags” rule 
• Properly disposing of credit reports

One of the most commonly asked questions on CAA’s Helpline is “Which Addenda Do I Need?” It’s a simple enough question, but there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Determining which addenda are required depends on many factors including:

• Applicability of AB 1482 rent control and just cause
• The type of rental unit
• When the rental unit was built
• The location of the rental unit
• The property owner’s policies
• The tenant’s activities

This webinar will break down the questions property owners and managers have to ask to determine the addenda they need, and what CAA addenda should (or should not) be used based on the answers to those questions.
