Before applying for a permit to demolish a residential property, a landlord must inform current and future tenants of the fastest possible date for the building to be demolished. (Cal. Civ. Code 1940.6) As long as the minimum requirement at the federal level is met, states may adopt different laws and regulations for the rental and leasing of real estate. It is important to familiarize yourself with the specifics and requirements of California state law to ensure that your lease protects your financial and legal rights adequately. An example of a section to be included in the rental agreement would be that if a residential building is in a specific flood risk zone, each rental agreement must inform potential tenants about it. (Cal. Gov. Code 8589.45) A landlord must submit a lease agreement with notification of any prior contamination caused by the production of methamphetamine on the land, and all potential tenants must sign and acknowledge this fact. (Cal. HSC 25400.28) DISCLOSURE OF THE DEMOLITION. On the following units are planned for demolition. On or after that date, active leases for the unit (s) concerned (s) are terminated.
Pest control plans or communications should be linked to lease agreements and/or made available to tenants with more than 24 hours` notice for individual cases. This addition of bed bugs can also be included in the rental agreement to ensure that the tenant gives his consent. In case of contamination, the landlord is required to follow the decontamination before the start of the rental period in order to ensure the safety of the tenant. Concentrations below 1.5 g/100 cm2 must be reached before the property is considered safe for life. Mold Declaration (No. 26147-26148) – The landlord must disclose the health risks to the tenant by inserting the document into the agreement. In California, homeowners must submit a form as part of the lease if there is a known presence of toxic form or a high probability that it will form. This disclosure must be made next to or on the lease itself, unless the form has been rearranged according to California`s security guidelines.
It can also be included in the absence of mold known as a safety measure for tenants and to minimize the owner`s liability. Owners must submit a clause outlining prohibited and limited smoking areas for leases signed after January 1, 2012. (Cal. Civ. Code 1947.5) In California, if each unit does not have its own supply meter, the owner must disclose this information in the lease agreement. You must also provide and execute a reciprocal written agreement with the tenant on the payment of services. This agreement may include the lessor who supports the joint public service enterprise, installs a submetering system, royalties are awarded between several parties (if units are distributed) or other methods to determine the breakdown of benefits. If the landlord has a real knowledge of the rental property that resides in a flood zone, he must inform the tenant in the rental contract with a minimum type of writing of 8 points. Disclosure must include: Demolition (Az.: 1940.6) – If the landlord has obtained permission from his respective municipal office to demolish a dwelling unit, it must be communicated to the tenant before the acceptance of a tenancy agreement or deposit. In California, any knowledge about the production, use or storage of methamphetamine is required in a lease agreement.
