The Sacramento Tenant Protection and Relief Act goes into effect Thursday, impacting renters and landlords in the city of Sacramento.
Here’s what renters need to know about the new ordinance:
The protections apply to all renters in Sacramento who live in apartments, duplexes, mobile home parks, and single room occupancy hotels built prior to Feb. 1, 1995. It applies to tenants who signed leases that are month-to-month or longer. It expires Dec. 31, 2024, but could be extended.
