(1)Existing law requires a landlord to permit a tenant to participate in personal agriculture in portable containers approved by the landlord if certain conditions are met, including, among others, that the plant crop will not interfere with the maintenance of the rental property. This bill would require a landlord to permit a tenant to utilize a clothesline or drying rack, as defined, approved by the landlord in the tenant’s private area, as defined, if certain conditions are met, including, among others, that the clothesline or drying rack will not interfere with the maintenance of the rental property and the use of the clothesline or drying rack does not violate reasonable time or location restrictions imposed by the landlord. (2)Under existing law, any provision of a governing document, as defined, that effectively prohibits or unreasonably restricts the use of a homeowner’s backyard for personal agriculture, as defined, is void and unenforceable, unless it imposes a reasonable restriction, as defined, on the use of a homeowner’s backyard. This bill would make any provision of a governing document, as defined, void and unenforceable if it effectively prohibits or unreasonably restricts the use of a clothesline or a drying rack, as defined, in an owner’s backyard, except that reasonable restrictions, as defined, would be enforceable. The bill would specify that these provisions would only apply to backyards that are designated for the exclusive use of the owner. Hide

Existing law generally prohibits housing discrimination with respect to the personal characteristics of race, color, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, ancestry, familial status, source of income, disability, or genetic information. This bill would make it unlawful for the owner of any rental housing accommodation to deny the rental or lease of a housing accommodation without first satisfying specified requirements relating to the application process. The bill would prohibit the owner of a rental housing accommodation from inquiring about, or requiring an applicant for rental housing accommodation to disclose, a criminal record during the initial application assessment phase, as defined, unless otherwise required by state or federal law. The bill would permit an owner of a rental housing accommodation to disclose the owner’s criminal background check policy on the rental housing accommodation application, as specified, and after successful completion of the initial application assessment phase, to request a criminal background check and inquire about and consider an applicant’s criminal record in deciding whether to rent or lease. The bill would require that disclosure and request to include a written disclosure that the applicant may provide evidence demonstrating inaccuracies within the applicant’s criminal record or evidence of rehabilitation or other mitigating factors, as defined. The bill would prohibit, in connection with a rental application, the owner of the rental housing accommodation from requiring disclosure of, or, if such information is received, denying a dwelling based in whole or in part on specified information or occurrence, including arrests that did not result in conviction, with specified exceptions, convictions that have been voided, and juvenile justice determinations, among others. The bill would provide that an owner is not liable to any person for accepting or denying a person with a criminal record as a tenant if the owner followed the above-described procedures in accepting that person as a tenant.

The Mobilehome Residency Law governs tenancies in mobilehome parks and, among other things, authorizes the management of a mobilehome park, under specified circumstances, to either remove the mobilehome from the premises and place it in storage or store the mobilehome on its site. Existing law provides the management with a warehouse lien for these costs and imposes various duties on the management to enforce this lien. Existing law also imposes various duties on the management of a mobilehome park when seeking to sell an abandoned mobilehome and its contents. Existing law requires a court to enter a judgment of abandonment if the criteria for abandonment has been satisfied and no party establishes an interest in the mobilehome at the hearing. Existing law requires the management, under certain circumstances, to obtain a tax clearance certificate from the county tax collector of the county in which the mobilehome is located when selling an abandoned mobilehome. Existing law, the Manufactured Housing Act of 1980, requires the Department of Housing and Community Development to enforce various laws pertaining to manufactured housing, mobilehomes, park trailers, commercial coaches, special purpose commercial coaches, and recreational vehicles. Existing law requires all fees accruing to the department pursuant to the act to be deposited within the Mobilehome Revolving Fund, which is continuously appropriated to the department for carrying out the act. This bill would amend the Mobilehome Residency Law to, among other things, authorize the management to enforce a warehouse lien and to designate a mobilehome for disposal without requiring the management or other person enforcing the lien to pay past or current vehicle license fees or obtain a tax clearance certificate. The bill would require a court to enter a judgment of abandonment if, instead, the criteria for abandonment has been satisfied and no party establishes an interest in the mobilehome and tenders all past due rent and other charges. The bill would authorize a procedure for the management of a mobilehome park to dispose of an abandoned mobilehome and its contents without requiring the management to pay past or current vehicle license fees or obtain a tax clearance certificate. This bill would require the management to notify the county tax collector in the county in which the mobilehome park is located that management will either apply to have the mobilehome designated for disposal after a warehouse lien sale or dispose of an abandoned mobilehome and its contents pursuant to these provisions. This bill would also require the management to file a notice of disposal, as specified, and to submit certain information required for completing the disposal process under penalty of perjury. This bill would require the Department of Housing and Community Development to charge a fee, as specified, for processing the notice of disposal and any information required for completing the disposal process. By establishing additional fees to be deposited into the Mobilehome Revolving Fund, this bill would make an appropriation. By expanding the crime of perjury, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason. Hide

The Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL) governs the terms and conditions of residency in mobilehome parks, and includes provisions that are applicable to those who have an ownership interest in a subdivision, cooperative, or condominium for mobilehomes, or a resident-owned mobilehome park, as specified. Among other things, these provisions set forth the rights of residents and homeowners regarding the use of the property. This bill would enact the Mobilehome Residency Law Mediation Act within the MRL to establish a mediation program for alleged violations of the MRL, including investigation of alleged violations of the MRL and determination and notice of violations, to be administered by an unspecified department. The bill would establish the Mobilehome Residency Law Mediation Fund, for funds collected by the Department of Housing and Community Development pursuant to the bill. The bill would impose a unspecified monetary assessment on owners of mobilehome parks, and would authorize an owner to impose an unspecified portion of that assessment on homeowners. Hide

(1)The existing Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) prohibits any person, in the course of doing business, from knowingly and intentionally exposing any individual to a chemical known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity without giving a specified warning, or from knowingly discharging or releasing such a chemical into water or any source of drinking water, except as specified. The act imposes civil penalties of not more than $2,500 per day upon persons who violate those prohibitions, and provides for the enforcement of those prohibitions by the Attorney General, a district attorney, or specified city attorneys or prosecutors, and by any person in the public interest. The act requires any person bringing an action in the public interest, or any private person filing an action in which a violation of the act is alleged, to notify the Attorney General, the district attorney, city attorney, or prosecutor in whose jurisdiction the violation is alleged to have occurred, and the alleged violator that such an action has been filed. This bill would require a person filing an enforcement action in the public interest for certain specified exposures to provide a notice in a specified proof of compliance form. The bill would prohibit an enforcement action from being filed by that person, and would prohibit the recovery of certain payments or reimbursements, if the notice to the alleged violator alleges a failure to provide a clear and reasonable warning for those specified exposures and, within 14 days after receiving the notice, the alleged violator corrects the alleged violation, pays a civil penalty in the amount of $500 per facility or premises, and notifies the person bringing the action that the violation has been corrected pursuant to the specified proof of compliance form. The bill would specify that the alleged violator may correct the violation, pay the civil penalty, and serve a correction notice on the person who served notice of the violation only one time for a violation arising from the same exposure in the same facility or on the same premises. The bill would require the Judicial Council, on April 1, 2019, and at each 5-year interval thereafter, to adjust that civil penalty, as specified. (2)Proposition 65 provides that it may be amended by a statute, passed in each house by 23 vote, to further its purposes. This bill would find and declare that it furthers the purposes of Proposition 65 and would make other findings regarding the purposes of the bill. The bill would declare that a specified provision of the bill is independent and severable from the other changes made by this bill. (3)This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute. Hide

Existing law requires the installation of a manufactured home, mobilehome, or commercial modular as a fixture or improvement to real property to comply with specified provisions. Existing law requires an enforcement agency to record with the county recorder of the county where real property is situated, on the same day that the certificate of occupancy for a manufactured home, mobilehome, or commercial modular is issued by the appropriate enforcement agency, that the real property has been installed upon, a document naming the owner of the real property, describing the real property with certainty, and stating that a manufactured home, mobilehome, or commercial modular has been affixed to the real property by installation on a foundation system, as specified. This bill would instead require that recordation to occur within 5 business days of the issuance of the certificate of occupancy. Existing law provides that once installed on a foundation system in compliance with these provisions, a manufactured home, mobilehome, or commercial modular shall be deemed a fixture and a real property improvement to the real property to which it is affixed and physical removal of the manufactured home, mobilehome, or commercial modular shall thereafter be prohibited without the consent of all persons or entities who, at the time of removal, have title to any estate or interest in the real property to which it is affixed. The bill would also make other technical, nonsubstantive, and clarifying changes. Hide

(1)The California Constitution prohibits the general ad valorem tax rate on real property from exceeding 1% of the full cash value of the property, subject to certain exceptions. This measure would create an additional exception to the 1% limit for a rate imposed by a city, county, or special district to service bonded indebtedness incurred to fund certain fire, emergency response, police, or sheriff buildings or facilities, and equipment, that is approved by 55% of the voters of the city, county, or special district, as applicable. (2)The California Constitution conditions the imposition of a special tax by a city, county, or special district upon the approval of 23 of the voters of the city, county, or special district voting on that tax, and prohibits these entities from imposing an ad valorem tax on real property or a transactions or sales tax on the sale of real property. This measure would authorize the imposition, extension, or increase of a special tax by a city, county, or special district for the purpose of providing supplemental funding fire, emergency response, police, or sheriff services, upon the approval of 55% of the voters voting on the proposition, and would prohibit the revenues derived from such a tax from being expended to supplant any other funding source for the provision of these services. This measure would also make conforming changes to related provisions. (3)The California Constitution prohibits specified local government agencies from incurring any indebtedness exceeding in any year the income and revenue provided in that year, without the assent of 23 of the voters and subject to other conditions. In the case of a school district, community college district, or county office of education, the California Constitution permits a proposition for the incurrence of indebtedness in the form of general obligation bonds for the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities, or the acquisition or lease of real property for school facilities, to be adopted upon the approval of 55% of the voters of the district or county, as appropriate, voting on the proposition at an election. This measure would similarly lower to 55% the voter-approval threshold for a city or county to incur bonded indebtedness, exceeding in any year the income and revenue provided in that year, that is in the form of general obligation bonds issued to fund certain fire, emergency response, police, or sheriff buildings or facilities, and equipment.

Existing law authorizes any school district to impose qualified special taxes within the district pursuant to specified procedures. Existing law defines “qualified special taxes” as special taxes that apply uniformly to all taxpayers or all real property within the school district and may exempt certain persons. This bill would provide that special taxes that apply uniformly include any special tax imposed on a per parcel basis, according to the square footage of a parcel or the square footage of improvements on a parcel, according to the classification of a parcel, and at a lower rate on unimproved property. This bill would authorize a school district to treat multiple parcels of real property as one parcel of real property for purposes of a qualified special tax, where the parcels are contiguous, under common ownership, and constitute one economic unit.

The Subdivision Map Act requires a subdivider, at the time of filing a tentative or parcel map for a subdivision to be created from the conversion of a rental mobilehome park to resident ownership, to avoid the economic displacement of all nonpurchasing residents by following specified requirements relating to the conversion. In this regard, existing law requires that the subdivider obtain a survey of support of residents of the mobilehome park for the proposed conversion, that the results of the survey be submitted to the local agency for consideration, as specified, and that the subdivider be subject to a hearing by a legislative body or advisory agency that is authorized to approve, conditionally approve, or disapprove the map. This bill would specify that the results of the survey are to be considered by the local agency in making its decision to approve, conditionally approve, or disapprove the map. The bill would authorize the local agency to disapprove the map if it finds that the results of the survey have not demonstrated the support of at least a majority of the park’s homeowners. The bill would authorize local legislative bodies to, by ordinance or resolution, implement the survey requirements. Hide

The California Constitution provides that the people have the right of access to information concerning the conduct of the people’s business. The California Constitution requires that the meetings of public bodies and the writings of public officials and agencies be open to public scrutiny. The California Constitution requires that whenever the Legislature or any state agency mandates a new program or higher level of service on any local government, the state shall provide a subvention of funds to reimburse the local government for the costs of the program or increased level of service. The California Constitution exempts certain mandates from the requirement to provide a subvention of funds including local agency compliance with the Ralph M. Brown Act (Brown Act). The California Public Records Act (CPRA) provides that public records are open to inspection at all times during the office hours of the state or local agency that retains those records, and that every person has a right to inspect any public record, except as provided. The Brown Act requires each legislative body of a local agency to provide notice of the time and place for holding regular meetings and requires that all meetings of a legislative body be open and public. Under the act, all persons are permitted to attend any meeting of the legislative body of a local agency, unless a closed session is authorized. This measure would require each local agency to comply with the CPRA and the Brown Act, and with any subsequent statutory enactment amending either act, enacting a successor act, or amending any successor act which contains findings demonstrating that the statutory enactment furthers the purposes of the people’s right of access to information concerning the conduct of the people’s business. The measure would specifically exempt mandates contained within the scope of those acts, and certain subsequent statutory enactments that contain findings demonstrating that the statutory enactment furthers those same purposes, from the requirement to provide a subvention of funds.

This bill would require the Public Utilities Commission, by July 1, 2011, to open an investigation or other appropriate proceeding to evaluate and report to the Legislature, by January 1, 2014, when an owner of a mobilehome park or manufactured housing community that provides master-metered gas or electric service to its residents of the park or community should be required to transfer responsibility for gas or electric service to the gas or electrical corporation providing service in the area in which the park or community is located, along with those plant, facilities, and interests in real property that the commission, in consultation with the gas or electrical corporation, determines are necessary, convenient, or cost effective to provide service. The bill would require the commission to include in the report a recommended phase-in schedule for potential transfers, the estimated costs and benefits to the gas or electrical corporations for the transfer of responsibility, and the potential benefits or costs to affected residents and ratepayers. The bill would require the commission, in consultation with the Department of Housing and Community Development, to develop a system for any inspections that may be necessary to define, find, determine, or prioritize unsafe or substandard master-metered systems, but the bill would specify that this provision not be interpreted to require physical inspections of gas or electric systems.

The Mobilehome Residency Law generally regulates the terms and conditions of mobilehome tenancies in mobilehome parks. Existing law permits rent control in mobilehome parks. Existing law exempts certain rental agreements relating to mobilehomes from any local measure establishing the maximum amount that a landlord may charge a tenant for rent. This bill would provide that, upon the sale, assignment, transfer, or termination of an interest in a mobilehome or a mobilehome tenancy in a mobilehome park, the management of the park may offer a new rental agreement containing an initial rent that is in excess of the maximum rent established by a local measure by a minimum of 20% or $100, whichever is greater, as specified. The bill would permit not more than one increase within a 36-month period, as specified. The bill would specify that it does not apply to rental rate adjustments that are not subject to a local rent control ordinance and does not apply under other specified circumstances. Hide
