• REPEAL Costa-Hawkins Ballot Initiative: Understanding the Issue, presented by: Erik Erickson and Byers

What are the restrictions? Single family homes and condominiums are exempt from rent control under this state law. So is any apartment built after 1995, when Costa Hawkins was passed, or in some cases much earlier. If a city adopted rent control in 1980, for example — as Oakland and Berkeley did — then that is the cutoff; nothing built afterward can be subject to rent control. Costa Hawkins also prohibits cities from having a say in how much a landlord can raise the price after a tenant moves out, a policy known as vacancy control.
