Return of 60 Day Notice for No-Fault Evictions

January 1, 2007

The recent passage of State Assembly Bill AB 1169 reinstates the 60-day notice requirement in Californiato terminate a tenancy where the tenant is not at fault. This new law is effective January 1, 2007 and expires December 31, 2009 (unless the Legislature extends it again).

Exception: Under the new law, a 30-day notice is allowed if any tenant or resident has resided in the unit for less than one year. (The old law required that the 30-day notice exception be applied only if the actual tenant being evicted had resided in the unit for less than one year).

This law does not apply to, or otherwise affect, the rights of tenants who reside in units governed by local rent control laws.
