SAN MATEO ENACTS TENANT PROTECTIONS
The passage of Assembly Bill 1482 caps rent increases to 5% plus CPI, as well as provides just cause eviction protections statewide starting on January 1, 2020.
On November 4, 2019, the City Council unanimously approved an urgency ordinance to provide San Mateo renters just cause eviction protections in the interim until these statewide tenant protection laws go into effect. San Mateo’s local urgency ordinance prohibits evictions without cause, and retroactively applies starting October 1, 2019. Certain limits apply based on building type and term of occupancy.
