Costa–Hawkins is a key state statute enacted to manage the power of California cities to regulate their rental markets. (Wikipedia) A vote for repeal of Costa-Hawkins would allow cities to expand rent control to previously protected single family residences, condominiums and new construction. Voters registered by October 22 will have the chance to vote on November 6. (Secretary of State)

– owners can expect rents to be controlled even when a unit becomes vacant
– landlords of previously exempt single family, condo and granny flats rentals can expect their rents to be controlled
