ONLINE RENTAL REGISTRY BILL WITHDRAWN FROM POLICY
Good news! AB 1188 was withdrawn from today’s Assembly Housing
Committee hearing agenda.
AB 1188 by Assemblymember Buffy Wicks (Democrat, Oakland) would
require local governments to establish their own online rental
registry portals by 2024. It would require landlords to register
and provide an exhaustive list of rental-related information.
Landlords would also be prohibited from raising rents or
terminating a tenancy if they fail to register.
SENATOR CONNIE LEYVA’S RESTRICTIVE RENT RELIEF BILL SENT
TO APPROPRIATIONS SUSPENSE FILE
WMA is pleased to announce that Senator Connie Leyva’s SB 64 was
placed on the Senate Appropriations Committee suspense file
yesterday. Those bills identified as having significant cost to
the state are sent to the suspense file.
The bill was recently amended to remove rental repayment
provisions addressed with prior legislation and narrowed to
prevent the ability of parkowners to issue 7-day notice
AB 81 PASSED BY LEGISLATURE AND SIGNED BY GOVERNOR NEWSOM
ON FEBRUARY 23, 2021
Follow-up urgency legislation signed by Governor Newsom clarifies
what legislators and the governor had previously
promised: Landlords will be paid a full 80% of the rent owed
during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Previously signed legislation, SB 91, was not clear on this
point, providing that landlords would be paid “up to” 80%.
AB 81 clarifies this issue.
We are pleased to announce that Assemblymember Kelly Seyarto
(Republican, Riverside) has introduced AB 606 on WMA’s
behalf. AB 606 allows individuals to place 400 square feet
or less homes – also known as park models – on mobilehome park
AB 606 re-defines “park trailers” and is an important technical
clarification that will require the Housing and Community
Development Department (HCD) to allow these homes to be placed in
currently regulated communities on a year-round basis.
