Renter's Rights: Changes in the Tenant Protection Act You Should Know

A tenant lawyer will explain the changes in the Tenant Protection Act and talk about how new law protects renters from eviction and rent increases.

For example:

· An owner who evicts a tenant to live at the property themselves must occupy the property for at least 12 continuous months, or face penalties

· An owner who evicts a tenant to substantially remodel a unit first must give the tenant a specific description of the remodeling and its duration, with copies of permits required to remodel, or face penalties

· An owner who violates state-wide rent control laws may face damages up to three times the amount exceeding allowable rental increases

Talk Followed by Q&A.
