This webinar will cover the different steps in the application process with information about legal compliance information and best practices, including:

California law provides significant protections to residents of rental property who are victims of domestic violence or other violent crimes. The legislature has determined that victims of domestic violence should not lose their housing solely because of abuse or calling for assistance from law enforcement. However, the law also recognizes that in some cases it may be best for the victim to relocate – and to be released from the financial obligations of a lease. These protections were recently extended to victims of violent crime (not just domestic violence) and to residents who need to move because their family member who lives elsewhere was the victim of a violent crime or domestic violence. The protections were further expanded as of January 1, 2023, to protect victims of domestic violence who previously shared tenancy with the perpetrator and those who previously lost protection because the perpetrator returned to the property without the victim’s consent or for child custody exchanges. This webinar will help landlords understand domestic violence, provide an overview of legal protections and provide practical guidance for landlords whose residents approach them for help.

The webinar will include a discussion of:
• Facts about Domestic Violence
• Domestic Violence and Rental Housing: General Background
• Landlord Do’s and Don’ts
• California Tenant Protection Laws
• Landlord Rights & Responsibilities
• Optional CAA Forms
• Domestic Violence Hotlines and Website

Developing appropriate screening criteria is critical for all rental housing providers. A rental housing provider who establishes appropriate screening criteria should find, more often than not, that they end up with tenants who pay rent on time and who adhere to house rules and policies.

Consistent application of lawful screening criteria, including renting to the first applicant who qualifies, will also help protect against claims of discrimination.

This webinar will discuss the categories of information that should and should not be considered as part of the tenant screening process, and the types of policies rental housing providers should have in place to deal with common issues in the screening process, including:

•    Setting an appropriate income standard
•    Considerations for credit requirements
•    Evaluating rental history
•    Avoiding criteria that violate fair housing laws

Acting as a landlord in California can be a risky business. 

Landlords can face claims of wrongful eviction, discrimination, and personal injury occurring at the property, not to mention costs due to property damage caused by natural disasters, burglary, and vandalism. If the landlord has one employee or more, he or she must also maintain workers compensation insurance. Landlords without or with insufficient insurance can be faced with catastrophic business interruption and financial loss. 

Learn about the various types of insurance available to you as a rental housing provider, including recommendations for renters insurance, and the options provided through the CAA Value Insurance Plan.

New Proposition 65 regulations for the rental housing industry take effect July 1, 2019. Proposition 65 requires every business with ten or more employees to provide warnings prior to exposing any person to a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm. The new regulations allow landlords to comply with the law by providing most warnings in the lease or through an annual written notice rather than posting warnings throughout the property. This webinar will provide a detailed review of Proposition 65 and the two new warning regulations.


This webinar will cover the key information landlords with ten or more employees need to know:
  • What is Proposition 65?
  • Does it apply to all landlords? 
  • Who counts as an “employee”?
  • What listed chemicals and sources of exposure may be present at rental properties?
  • Can the written warnings be emailed?
  • Do the warnings have to be provided in other languages?
  • Warning signs for designated smoking areas
  • Warning signs for enclosed parking facilities
  • CAA’s New Proposition 65 Addendum
  • CAA’s New Proposition 65 Warning Annual Notification

If you follow the news, you probably notice that California appears to be in a constant state of emergency. Whether due to fires, severe storms, earthquakes, or pandemics, both the Governor and local officials have declared countless states of emergency over the last several years. Those emergency declarations trigger a provision of the state’s penal code, called the state’s anti-price gouging law, which limits how much rental housing providers can increase rent. And those limitations apply not only to your existing tenants but also to new tenants even in units that are new to the rental market. A violation of this law is a misdemeanor and subject to significant penalties.

One of the most asked questions on CAA’s Helpline is “Which Addenda Do I Need?” It’s a simple enough question, but there is no one-size-fits-all answer.
Determining which addenda are required depends on many factors including:
• Applicability of AB 1482 rent control and just cause
• The type of rental unit
• When the rental unit was built
• The location of the rental unit
• The property owner’s policies
• The resident’s activities

This webinar will break down the questions property owners and managers have to ask to determine the addenda they need, and what CAA addenda should (or should not) be used based on the answers to those questions.  CAA’s newly available addenda forms for 2024 will also be discussed, including the Micromobility Device Storage Area Addendum, Service Animal Policy Addendum, and the Temporary Rent Payment Discount Addendum.
