Laws Affecting Landlords

New Landlord Laws for 2016

The following bills have been passed by the California legislature for 2016:

AB 1 - This bill prohibits a city or county from imposing a fine for failure to water a lawn during a state-declared drought emergency.

AB 349 - This bill voids any provisions in common interest development (CID) guidelines and policies which prohibit the use of drought-tolerant landscaping, and prohibits any requirement that an owner remove water-efficient landscaping when the state of emergency has concluded.

AB 396 - This bill prohibits a landlord from requesting a criminal background check from an applicant until after the applicant has completed the initial application process and read the landlord's criminal background check policy. This bill also prohibits the landlord from denying tenancy based on an arrest that did not result in a conviction, a conviction that has been judicially dismissed, juvenile justice determinations or offenses other than felonies and misdemeanors.

AB 418 - This bill extends indefinitely the requirement that a termination of tenancy based on domestic violence or sexual assault be subject to existing security deposit laws. This bill also reduces the time period the victimized tenant has to give the landlord a notice of intent to vacate from 30 days to 14 days.

AB 1448 - This bill prohibits a landlord and homeowners' association (HOA) from prohibiting a tenant's or homeowner's use of a clothesline or drying rack in their private area or backyard.

SB 328 - This bill requires a landlord to notify a tenant about use of pesticides in the tenant's unit if the landlord applied a pesticide without using a licensed structural pest control operator, and to notify tenants at least 24 hours prior to application of any pesticides to common areas without a licensed pest control operator.

AB 551 - This bill requires a landlord entering into a lease on and after July 1, 2016 to provide a prospective tenant information about bed bugs. Existing tenants are to be provided with the disclosure by January 1, 2017. The bill also imposes bed bug notice requirements on tenants.
