• REPEAL Costa-Hawkins Ballot Initiative: Understanding the Issue

Presented by: Erik Ericksen and Byers

The Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act is a decades-old California law that limits the application of cities' rent control ordinances. What are the restrictions? Single family homes and condominiums are exempt from rent control under this state law. Also exempted is any apartment built after 1995, when Costa Hawkins was passed. Costa Hawkins also requires vacancy decontrol, which prohibits cities from having a say in how much a landlord can raise the rent after a tenant voluntarily moves out.

Help Gather Signatures for the Costa-Hawkins repeal. We will have materials and instructions.
