SPUR Supports if Amended AB 1697 to Create Statewide 'Just Cause' Eviction Protection

Policy Letter May 21, 2019

Current law allows landlords to evict tenants without a reason, absent local controls, on 30- or 60- days’ notice, depending on the length of tenancy. AB 1697 requires landlords to have a good reason for evicting their tenants and to list that reason on a notice that they are already required to provide. SPUR urges the authors to set relocation payment requirements for no-fault just cause evictions at a reasonable level and tiered appropriately to unit bedroom count and to clarify terms like “waste,” “unsafe habitation,” “substantially remodel,” etc. to avoid future conflicts.
