Help Stop Rent control Initiative - CalRHA Fact Sheet

Legislative Updates,

A new rent control initiative will be on the November 2024 ballot.


  • Will prohibit rent increases upon vacancy (also known as vacancy de-control) by eliminating the owner's ability to charge the market rate when a tenant vacates the unit.
  • Imposes rent control on all properties including single-family homes by
    eliminating AB 1482 protections.


  • Your rental income and property value will decline.
  • If you are renting your units below market, you may never catch up because the initiative allows local jurisdictions to "cap" how much you may increase rent following a vacancy.
  • Rent "caps" would apply to single-family homes and condominiums.

To stop this so-called "Justice for Renters" initiative in 2024, CalRHA and its affiliates are asking for your support and contribution to fight this third attempt by the same anti-housing activists behind Propositions 10 and 21 from 2018 and 2020. CalRHA and its regional associations collectively need to raise a minimum $5 million dollars, so we're all in this together.

All funds raised will go toward the initiative fight. To make a contribution, please click here. Thank you for your generosity.

The last rent control fight cost the broader housing industry $80 million dollars. This next fight will cost even more.

Funds will be deposited into a dedicated account specifically for fighting the initiative.

We defeated both the 2018 and 2020 rent control initiatives. With your support. We can do it again.
