Two Agenda Items That Put Housing Under Attack

Item #5: See the proposal for a Tenant Anti-Harassment Ordinance here. 
California state law already has powerful protections that make it illegal to harass a tenant. This proposal would create a private right of action, which creates an enormous liability for housing providers. “Mom & Pop” housing providers in Sacramento are usually the ones that offer single-family rentals that provide housing for families. Without them, families will be forced into smaller, less ideal housing accommodations.

Item #7: See the proposal for more rental regulations and Tenant & Community Opportunity to Purchase here.  

Why this policy proposal hurts housing and homeownership in Sacramento:

  • “Sacramento Opportunity to Purchase Act” would require any tenant-occupied building listed for sale to be sold to a tenant or eligible community group if they can meet the initial listing price.
  • This is an extremely flawed policy that creates delays and, significantly interferes in the market, home values, and impact a property owner’s time-sensitive decision to sell based on personal costs related to education, health care, and major personal expenses.
  • Tenant and Community Opportunity to Purchase policies require the city to create a costly administrative process.
