Rent Cap Bill Passes Legislature

A bill that will create a statewide restrictive rent cap and burdensome “just cause” eviction standards passed the legislature late Wednesday afternoon. C.A.R. had reached an agreement with the sponsors and the bill’s author to make reasonable amendments to remove C.A.R.’s opposition. The consensus language would have promoted tenant protections and protected property ownership, but the language did not make it into the final bill, and C.A.R. remained opposed. C.A.R. issued the following statement from C.A.R. President Jared Martin:

“The CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® is disappointed by the passage of Assembly Bill 1482, which moves California toward statewide rent control. Throughout the debate, REALTORS® advocated for a balanced solution that protected renters and respected the rights of property owners. While several of our recommendations were included in AB 1482, including the exemption of single-family homes and condominiums, the final bill did not do enough to increase the supply of affordable rental housing. Even legislators who voted yes did so acknowledging its shortcomings.

It was disappointing that the California Apartment Association and the California Business Roundtable did not stand with us, but their decision had no impact on our commitment to making our position clear and focusing squarely on why AB 1482 was not a solution to California’s housing supply crisis.                                                                            

We are grateful to all the REALTORS® across California who responded to our many Red Alerts and made calls to lawmakers urging them to vote no. It was a true grassroots effort that generated more than 8,400 calls and 1,300 tweets in the past week alone.

In the final days, REALTORS® stood firm and made our case against AB 1482 based solely on its policy. Although we did not prevail, we remain steadfast in our commitment to overcome California’s historic housing supply and affordability crisis. Much more work remains ahead of us, and as we have said from the beginning, REALTORS® appreciate the commitment of Gov. Gavin Newsom, Democrats and Republicans to continue working to incentivize the production of new housing for rental and sale. We look forward to working with the Newsom administration and California Legislature to fight for homeownership because providing housing is critical to Californians.”
