Marin website outlines new housing bill

Mark Prado

Marin County renters and landlords can now visit a single site that addresses changes in California law, maximum permissible rents and other local laws related to renting.

The new webpage maintained by the Marin County Community Development Agency staff provides details about Assembly Bill 1482, which went into effect Jan. 1 and will remain active until Jan.1, 2030.

The bill essentially caps annual rent increases at 5%, plus 4% for cost of living. The cost of living increase is set each year.

The new county webpage includes answers to frequently asked questions about AB 1482, the County’s landlord registry for properties in unincorporated Marin, just cause for eviction policy, mandatory mediation rules, source-of-income protection for renters, and has links to other local resources.
