Existing law regulates the terms and conditions of residential tenancies and governs the obligations of tenants and landlords under a lease or tenancy.

This bill would impose a civil penalty, not to exceed $1,000, for each violation of these provisions, to be paid to the person or entity that brings the action. This bill would specifically authorize a person to seek declaratory or injunctive relief for a violation of this prohibition.

This bill would additionally authorize specified law enforcement prosecutorial entities to enforce these prohibitions. Hide
