LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2925, as amended, Bonta. Just cause eviction. Tenancy: eviction: good cause.
Existing law governs the hiring of residential dwelling units and establishes provisions for the renewal or termination of a hiring of residential real property for an unspecified term. Existing law requires that an owner of a residential dwelling generally give at least 60 days’ notice prior to termination or, in the case of a tenant or resident that has resided in the dwelling for less than one year or if certain other conditions apply, 30 days’ notice prior to termination. Existing law provides that a tenant of real property is guilty of unlawful detainer in certain circumstances.

This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation relating to just cause evictions of residential tenants.

This bill would prohibit a landlord from terminating a tenancy except upon good cause, as set forth with particularity in the notice. The bill would state that its provisions are in addition to, and do not supersede or preempt, any other state or local law requiring the showing of good cause prior to the termination of a tenancy.
