California enacts statewide rent control

Oct 08, 2019By

During a ceremony Tuesday at a senior citizen center, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a statewide law that controls how much landlords can charge for rent. Starting in 2020, the law caps annual rent increases to 5% plus inflation. With Newsom’s signature, California became the second state in the nation to pass a rent cap. Oregon passed a similar law in March.
