The Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (“TPA”), also known as Assembly Bill 1482, is the state law that imposes both Rent Control and Just Cause Eviction protections absent a local ordinance that provides these protections. During 2013, the Legislature also passed Senate Bill 567, which imposes even greater restrictions on so-called, “no-fault” evictions for owner move-in, substantial remodel, or removal of a property from the rental market. Senate Bill 567 is effective as of April 1, 2024.

Statewide rent control and tenant protections under the TPA are generally applicable to most multifamily rental properties constructed more than fifteen years ago with few exceptions for duplexes where the owner is one of the occupants. In certain circumstances, the Tenant Protection Act applies to single-family residences owned by corporate owners. The TPA imposes annual limitations on rent increases, the payment of relocation fees, and just cause eviction rules for rental properties covered under it.
