AB 828: Mandates Rents go down 25%–Killing Private Property

The Socialists in Sacramento, the Democrats, want to steal private property—using the virus as the excuse.  AB 828 would mandate that all rents go down by 25%, by government order.  Should that happen most owners of property would be forced to go bankrupt and turn over their property to the State.  That is the goal of AB 828—to end private property in California.  We already have the Socialist Mayor of San Diego, Kevin Faulconer wanting to use tax dollars to buy hotels/motels for the homeless.

“AB 828 denies equal justice to housing providers by:

·         Forcing landlords to reduce rents by 25% — even if a tenant cannot show a COVID-19 hardship or need.

·         Allowing the courts to set rents and change rental agreements already in place.

·         Assuming every tenant is facing a COVID-19 hardship and must be compensated for it.

·         Protecting nuisance tenants. The bill does not require tenants to answer an unlawful detainer complaint.

·         Mandating that rental property owners demonstrate an economic hardship to collect the contracted rent.”

Does this sell around the nation.  Newsom signs this and he has ended his race for President.

CAA urges Legislature to stop bill to reduce rents by 25%

California Apartment Association,  4/16/20 

A bill in response to COVID-19 would force every rental property owner in California to reduce rents by 25%.

The bill, AB 828 by Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, also would force landlords to subsidize the rents of their tenants.

Assemblyman Phil Ting

Ting’s proposal ignores the robust rent and eviction controls already in place across California. It provides no assurances that landlords can collect rent, remove problem tenants, or get a fair hearing in the court system. Read CAA’s letter opposing AB 828 here.

Landlords can help CAA fight this bill by sending a letter to their legislator, urging them oppose

AB 828. Visit CAA’s Action Center to get started.

·         Mandating that rental property owners demonstrate an economic hardship to collect the contracted rent.

This unfair bill would allow the government and courts to give reduced rent and extended tenancies to all renters, even those not faceing economic hardships. At the same time, it provides no safeguards for landlords.

CAA asks owners to contact their state legislator and ask him or her to vote no on AB 828 – legislation that cuts rents 25%. Click the button below to start.

    Keep voting for democrats, California, it’s working out so well.

    Vote RED (Remove Every Democrat) in November, our freedom depends on it.

  2. Write to your state legislator? Ask him to vote No?? Like, they care!? Maybe better to form a letter-writing and call-in campaing to advise Ting and other legislators that they risk being out of office at the next election unless they withdraw this bill. Ting’s idea, like that of Faulconer and others, seems to be to eventualy force private property owners into ceding their property to the state. Whether current tenants would be better off in state-owned property is questionable.

    Many Landlords are POOR straggling, and not working neither, and THEY HAVE TO PAY SUPER HIGH PROPERTY TAXES ,AND I DON’T SEE COUNTY SAYING THAT THEY WILL GIVE CREDIT FOR THIS 25%REDUCTION, AFTER ALL SUPPORT THOSE TENANTS ARE POLITICIANS RESPONSIBILITY WHY THEY DON’T DONATE THEIR SALARIES, OR TAKE THEM TO THEIR HOMES. NOW everything is expensive, I don’t see those JUDGES FORCING THEM TO LOWER PRICE OR TO GIVE SERVICES FOR FREE, FOOD IS EXPENSIVE, SERVICES ARE EXPENSIVE,TAXES ARE EXPENSIVE, WHY COURT DON’T FORCE THEM TO HELP.
    DEMOCRATS ARE CAUSING A BIG CHAOS THINKING THAT THE OW CALIFORNIA That why people who works ARE LEAVING,CALIFORNIA LET SEE WHAT THIS GROUP OF DEMOCRATS, is going to do with the stale full homeless and welfare people,and nobody paying taxes. they should protect middle ,WORKING CLASS, AFTER ALL THEY PAY THEIR SALARIES.

    I would like to see all politicians also cut their income pay by 25%. They want to impose hardship on all of us and tell us we are all in this together? Then let’s see them get on board with true pay cuts. They are paid by our tax dollars, we pay in to. Oh ya, they would just say they are taking pay cuts and then raise our taxes to cover their losses. We have to vote out these communist in our state, or we won’t have a state any more.
