Q.What are the new notice requirements to raise rent (CA)?

A.Previously, landlords were only required to provide 30 days notice of a rent increase to their month-to-month tenants. As of January 1, 2002, California landlords who decide to raise the rent for month-to-month tenants may need to give 60 days advance notice of the rent increase. Landlords must give 60 days' notice for a rent increase that, alone or combined with other rent increases imposed during the previous 12 months, increase the rent by more than 10% of the lowest rent charged within the 12 months before the effective date of the increase. (California Civil Code Section 827(b)(2)-(3).) This rule applies to all California landlords, including those covered by local rent control ordinances.
