For many rental housing providers, July 1, 2020, is an important date as there will be additional notice requirements in new and renewed rental agreements under California’s Tenant Protection Act (AB 1482).
The below information was shared by our colleagues at the Law Offices of Todd Rothbard and outlines the requirements in more detail. We thought our readers would find this information useful.
July 1, 2020 marks an important deadline for a few requirements of the 2020 Tenant Protection Act:
Owners of single-family homes are required, beginning on July 1, 2020, to include the exemption language in each new lease and lease renewal. If they do not, then their property is NOT exempt. The required exemption language is included in the attached addendum
Owners of units that are subject to the law, beginning on July 1, 2020, must include a statement that the tenancy is subject to the law in each lease and lease renewal. The required language is included in the attached addendum. For leases entered into prior to July 1, 2020, the exemption must be giving to each tenant that is subject to the law, either as an addendum (which they sign) or as a notice (which they are not required to sign), on or before August 1, 2020
In order for an owner to have the right to terminate a tenancy so they or their family can move into a unit, a clause indicating the right to do so must be in each lease and lease renewal beginning on July 1, 2020.
Owners may use the attached addendum to comply or may include the required language in your lease directly.
