Here in 2024, California continues to reduce protections, increase business costs, and generally make being a landlord more difficult, for Property Owners and Property Managers. AB 12 passed,
Property Owners and Property Managers Beware
Dated: November 20 2023
California recently passed a law prohibiting Property Managers and Property Owners from using a person's credit history to qualify potential tenants if they have a Government Rental Subsidy.
It is not clear what "alternative evidence of a verifiable legal means to pay their portion of the rent" includes, but it sounds disturbingly broad. The State continues its erosion of Property Owners' rights and control over their property by forcing them to enter into lopsided contracts with Government Agencies. It is increasingly difficult and treacherous to be a Property Owner or Property Manager in California.
