AB1482, commonly known as the Tenant Protection Act of 2019, takes effect on January 1, 2020, and results in several restrictions on landlords. Unless the rental property is exempt from the restrictions in AB1482, this new law specifies that a California landlord may only evict a tenant if the landlord has just-cause.
Just-cause reasons for eviction can be broken-down into “at-fault” and “no-fault” reasons for eviction. If the landlord does not have either an at-fault or a no-fault reason for eviction under AB1482, then the landlord cannot evict the tenant, unless an exception to the law applies.
Landlords needing help with an eviction can contact the Law Office of David Piotrowski.
