SPUR Supports if Amended AB 1482 to Establish a Statewide Rent Cap

Policy Letter May 21, 2019

Current state law protects tenants from rent increases over 10% when an emergency has been declared. AB 1482 would further protect California renters from large rent increases as a result of the ongoing housing emergency that could drive them from their homes. AB 1482 sets a maximum percentage for rent increases based on a Consumer Price Index formula. SPUR supports AB 1482 with several amendments including the cap number and the use of pass-throughs.
