Strengthen Rent Control by Repealing Costa-Hawkins Law, October 23-24, 2017
The state-wide Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act prevents single family homes, condominiums, and buildings built after 1995 from having rent or vacancy control. Lack of vacancy control means landlords try to force tenants out so they can increase the rent by a huge amount for new tenants. Join the campaign by email or in person.
