City Passes Tenant Protection Act of 2019

On December 10, 2019, the City of Pico Rivera City Council adopted AB 1482 as an urgency ordinance to protect renters from evictions without just cause and rental price gouging, through the end of December 2019, in advance of AB 1482's effective date of January 1, 2020. 

The ordinance is drafted as an urgency ordinance to preserve the public health, safety and welfare, as the consequences of the delayed implementation date of AB 1482 have resulted in an increase in eviction notices and excessive rent increases. 

The ordinance has been drafted to apply to tenants who received a 60-day termination notice without cause on or after October 8, 2019, when the Governor signed AB 1482, and where the tenant remains in possession and/or any eviction lawsuit has not reached conclusion.
