New California “RIGHT TO RENT” law at common interest developments (CIDs) is expected to protect private property rights of individual owners.
Thanks to the California Association of Realtors for sponsoring SB 150 on “RIGHT TO RENT” at a common interest developments.
This Senate Bill 150 was signed into law by Gov. Brown during July 2011 and will be effective starting on January 1, 2012.
There had been a trend among some homeowner associations in California to adopt restrictions that limit the ability of unit owners to rent their dwellings in Common Interest Developments (CIDs).
The California Association of Realtors contended that imposition of these private rental restrictions by HOAs diminishes an individual owner’s property rights by removing options that were available when the unit was purchased. C.A.R. sponsored SB 150 (a re-introduction of C.A.R.’s AB 2259 of 2008) to protect the right of a CID owner to rent his or her unit, if that right existed at the time the owner purchased the unit.
