Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

On March 4, 2020 California Governor Newsom declared a statewide state of emergency regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). The declaration is focused on response and preparation to avoid the spread of the virus. Click here to read more on the price gouging law preventing rent increases above 10%.

On January 1, 2019 AB 1919 was enacted to prevent price gouging during a state of emergency. It states in part “…upon the proclamation of a state of emergency, as defined, declared by the President of the United States, or the Governor, or upon the declaration of a local emergency, as defined, by the executive officer of any county, city, or city and county, and for a period of 30 days following that declaration, it is a misdemeanor with specified penalties for a person, contractor, business, or other entity to sell or offer to sell certain goods and services, including housing, for a price that exceeds by 10% the price charged by that person immediately prior to the proclamation of emergency, except as specified.”

Many counties and cities have declared states of emergency, so please check your local jurisdictions to ensure that you are in compliance with this law.
