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.
