New California housing laws 2020

An existing law that requires 90 days’ notice to renters who are evicted from a foreclosed property will stay on the books. The law was set to expire, but lawmakers made it permanent.

 

Strict new limits on rent increases will mean landlords can raise rates no more than 5% plus inflation each year. Renters in cities with existing, stricter controls will keep them, and some evictions will become harder to implement.

 

California homeowners will have more flexibility to build “granny flats,” or small housing units, on their properties.
