Chula Vista Tenant Ordinance Hearing Delayed Until August 9

Last week, SCRHA provided an update to members regarding the Chula Vista "Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance." Shortly after circulating that message, Chula Vista city staff notified SCRHA that the hearing has been delayed again until August 9. 

An updated version of the draft ordinance has not been provided as of yet. While SCRHA is eager to see what, if any, changes have been made and how they impact the industry, it is very unlikely that SCRHA will be able to remove its opposition. The ordinance in its entirety is problematic and unbalanced.  

SCRHA will share updates as soon as they become available. If you've missed previous updates on the proposal, click here. Make sure you are signed up for SCRHA Action Alerts so you can make your voice heard on this important vote and others!
