Legislative Update - April 4, 2024

Legislative Updates,


SCRHA is pleased to announce that several forms have been updated so that members can continue to comply with state and local laws. Members may access the latest forms via their Azibo account.  

SB 267 which went into effect on January 1, 2024, requires that housing providers allow applicants with government rent subsidies the opportunity to provide alternative evidence of their ability to pay versus having their credit report run as part of screening. SCRHA’s Application to Rent now reflects this option. 

SB 567, effective April 1, 2024, changes the rules and requirements when terminating tenancy for No-Fault Cause, specifically for Owner/Family Member Move-In and Substantial Remodel/Demolition. These rules were also adopted into the Tenant Protection Ordinances (TPO) of the cities of Chula Vista and San Diego. Forms specific to those local ordinances have been updated, as has the form for jurisdictions that fall under statewide Just Cause. Click here for additional information on SB 567 and compliance.

Important Reminder for Flood-Impacted Properties & Tenants
SCRHA is reminding owners of properties impacted by the floods in late January to take advantage of FEMA aid and other resources available. You may also wish to make information available to your residents. The County of San Diego Emergency Lodging Program is expected to come to an end on May 11, however, there is concern that many properties may not be fully repaired at that time and that residents may need additional help with temporary lodging or assistance finding permanent homes.

Property owners should apply for FEMA assistance if they have not already.
