Landlord Tenant Commission 

The Landlord Tenant Commission is a volunteer commission to educate and provide information to the public for residential Landlord-Tenant issues.  The commission does not have any legal authority and does not provide legal advice.  For legal assistance, please refer to the list of no-cost/low-cost resources on the Housing Resources page

  • When: First Monday of the month (unless otherwise posted)

  • Time: 6:15 p.m. 

  • Location: Community Services Building, 150 N. Third St., Burbank, Room 104 map

For assistance with resolving residential Landlord-Tenant questions or issues, complete the Landlord-Tenant Questionnaire below and return it to the Housing Authority Office. Should you plan to attend the next Landlord Tenant Commission meeting, please consider filling out and turning in a form so your case can be timely placed on a future agenda for discussion.  However, you do not need to attend the meeting to have your case assigned for review.  Once a form is received, it is assigned within 24 hours of a business day to a commission member for follow-up.

Assembly Bill 1482: Tenant Protection Act of 2019 v 2

Assembly Bill (AB) 1482 was signed by Governor Gavin Newsom on October 8, 2019.  This new law put in place statewide rent caps along with just cause eviction standards for specific multifamily and rental properties.  The law went into effect beginning January 1, 2020, and will run through January 1, 2030. 

AB 1482 Rent Cap Provision Excerpt
The law states “an owner of residential real property shall not, over the course of any 12-month period, increase the gross rental rate for a dwelling or a unit more than 5 percent plus the percentage change in the cost of living, or 10 percent, whichever is lower, of the lowest gross rental rate charged for that dwelling or unit at any time during the 12 months prior to the effective date of the increase.”  Furthermore, the law defines “Percentage change in the cost of living” as “the percentage change from April 1 of the prior year to April 1 of the current year in the regional Consumer Price Index for the region where the residential real property is located, as published by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. If a regional index is not available, the California Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers for all items, as determined by the Department of Industrial Relations, shall apply.”
