Beginning July 1, 2024, landlords in California can only demand a security deposit for a residential rental up to the equivalent of one month’s rent.

This act directs the Department of Housing and Community Development to research and develop mandatory building standards that will require new multi-family (more than 4 units) and existing multi-family buildings that pull permits for the purpose of alterations or additions to parking areas to install level 2 or higher EV charging stations during initial construction or the alterations.

SB 971
This senate bill will remove a landlord’s ability to deny pets in affordable housing units funded by the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) or the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC).
