Summary

The bill prohibits a landlord from evicting a residential tenant
unless the landlord has cause for eviction. Cause exists only when:
  • A tenant or lessee is guilty of an unlawful detention of real
property under certain circumstances described in existing
law, as amended by the bill; or
  • Conditions exist constituting grounds for a no-fault
eviction.
The following conditions constitute grounds for a no-fault
eviction of a residential tenant, with certain limitations:
  • Demolition or conversion of the residential premises;
  • Substantial repairs or renovations to the residential
premises;
  • Occupancy assumed by the landlord or a family member of
the landlord;
  • Expiration of time-limited housing operated by a
mission-driven organization; and
  • Withdrawal of the residential premises from the rental
market for the purpose of selling the residential premises.
A landlord that proceeds with a no-fault eviction in violation of
certain notice requirements or other restrictions must provide relocation
assistance to the tenant in the amount of 2 months' rent plus one
additional month of rent if any of the following individuals reside in the
residential premises:
  • An individual who is under 18 years of age or at least 60
years of age;
  • An individual whose income is no greater than 80% of the
area median income; or
  • An individual with a disability.
If a landlord proceeds with an eviction of a tenant without cause,
the tenant may seek relief as provided in existing laws concerning
unlawful removal of a tenant and may assert the landlord's violation as an
affirmative defense to an eviction proceeding.
Current law allows a tenant to terminate a tenancy by serving
written notice to the landlord within a prescribed time period, based on
the length of the tenancy. For the purpose of such notices, certain
provisions apply, including the following:
  • Any person in possession of real property with the assent
of the owner is presumed to be a tenant at will until the
contrary is shown; and
  • Certain provisions concerning notices to quit do not apply
to the termination of a residential tenancy if the residential
premises is a condominium unit.
The bill eliminates these provisions.
Current law requires the management of a mobile home park to
make a reasonable effort to notify a resident of the management's
intention to enter the mobile home space at least 48 hours before entry.
The bill increases this notice period to 72 hours.
