This site is intended to provide general guidance to owners and operators of residential rental housing and is not intended, nor should it be considered, legal advice. Owners and property managers should consult their financial advisors and/or attorneys regarding specific issues that arise involving a tenancy or operations. Only a trained professional, familiar with the details of a specific situation, can provide adequate counsel on which to base individual business decisions.


Local Regulation and Ordinances

Did you know that the Bay Area is one of the most heavily regulated rental housing markets in the United States?  

While State and Federal laws govern most rental housing operations in California, local governments have passed local laws that affect our businesses. As your advocate, we work with local government to find solutions that minimize legislative and regulatory solutions.  Yes, even landlords with a one single-family home are affected by many of these rules and regulations.

Did you realize that Bay Area tenants are some of the most savvy renters in the Nation? 

Our proximity to institutions of higher learning (Stanford/UC Berkley, Cal State, just to name a few) and to Silicon Valley means that in some cases, some tenants know rental housing better than their landlord.  This can be a distinct disadvantage to property owners and managers of all sizes who think they can "wing it".

Local Regulation/Ordinance Resources

Our database of Local Ordinances and Regulation summaries are available to all members of RHA. While our information is not legal advice, it does provide a reasonable overview of the most common types of regulation that affect any operator in Alameda County.   Each section provides a general overview and direct links to additional assistance and in many cases, the governing statutes.    Get started by clicking on the links to the left.
