    I've heard it's difficult to be a landlord in CA. This will be totally abused, no doubt.

    I'm sorry, but victims of abuse need to take some personal responsibility. Many of them continue to return to their abusers. They feed into the cycle of abuse, somehow. Putting this burden on the backs of landlords is absurd!

    I was a landlord for 15s years in Cali.

    Never had any problem renting my house and the laws NEVER got in my way.


    You people just dont think a person who has to call the police on their abuser needs a month or two while they reorganize their lives without the abusers monotary input.


    Why is it you people hate your poorer citizens so much you think they are all deadbeats?

    Many of them are deadbeats - get over it.

    Can landlords put in a background check on potential renters to see if they've ever filed a report?

    I doubt it. I looked at the text of the bill and it looks like the intent was to protect victims who may be evicted BECAUSE of the abuse. I can dig that. But it is so vague, that I have a feeling the tenants will be protected even for typical stuff like non payment of rent. Then what is a landlord to do? And no where in there does it say that they get "a month or two to get their act together" Where does truth come up with this stuff?

    Landlords are required to change locks within 24 hrs. That could be unreasonable if he or she lives elsewhere.
