Landlord Tenant rent control restrictions in Alameda County and Contra Costa cities and County

1995 State passed Costa-Hawkins Act which limited city and county from enforcing
rent control on certain units Key provisions are;
Exempting construction built after 1995 from local rent control laws
Exempting single-family homes from any form of rent control
Requiring all local rent control laws to contain a “vacancy decontrol” provision,
which allows the rental price to increase after a tenant moves out.
