In the newest ACMA Community Blog post, ACMA Fellow Norma Williams summarizes a handful of significant laws in California that became effective this year, as well as one initiative of note that will be included on the ballot in the state this November.

In her annual post, Williams draws particular attention to the Tenant Protection Act of 2019 that establishes rent increase limitations and eviction procedures for certain tenancies. Other new laws described by Williams include conforming to Federal changes re. 1031 exchanges; housing development projects; the resignation or non-acceptance capabilities of deed of trust trustees; and economic development subsidies. A PDF document that accompanies the blog post is a full article summarizing key aspects of the laws.
