Residents, Renters|

Assembly Bill 1482 (AB 1482, the California Tenant Protection Act of 2019)  is a new State law effective January 1 , 2020.  

It does the following:

  • Requires a landlord have a “just cause” in order to terminate a tenancy.  
  • Limits annual rent increases to no more than 5% + local CPI (Consumer Price Index), or 10%, whichever is lower.
  • It applies to some units that are not already subject to the City of Los Angeles’s Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO).  For information on what is covered please click here. 

It does not do the following:

  • It does not replace, amend or remove the Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO).  If a unit is already covered by the Los Angeles City’s RSO eviction and rent increase regulations, the units remain subject the City’s laws and the statewide law does not remove or replace the RSO tenant protections.
