Program description:

2019 saw dramatic changes in California residential landlord-tenant law, both at the statewide level and via local ordinances. This program will cover the most important of those changes, including the Tenant Protection Act of 2019, signed into law by Governor Newsom on October 8, 2019, along with several other new state laws and municipal ordinances local to the Santa Clara County area. These laws, among other things, impose rent control restrictions and just cause eviction standards on most (but not all) residential properties, eliminate landlords' option to decline government housing vouchers as a tenant source of income, alter the notice period for certain rent increases, and create special rights for active military tenants.  Included in this program is an
overview of the political climate in Sacramento that wrought these changes and a forward looking analysis of what other changes in state law may be coming soon.

This program will also cover the most recent of the rapidly expanding number of local ordinances addressing residential landlord-tenant law, and the interplay between the new statewide laws and the various local ordinances in effect in the Santa Clara County area. The program includes both landlord and tenant oriented practitioners, each of which will offer their unique perspective on how to work within the new legal framework.
This program is targeted at landlord-tenant lawyers, real estate lawyers, general practitioners, landlords, tenants, and real estate
broker and licensees, especially property managers.
