Prop 10 - What is it about? 

This proposition deals mainly with rent control. 

Right now, there are three major regulations that California cities have to follow when it comes to rent-control. They all date back to a 1995 law in California: 

  • Rent control is only allowed on housing built before 1995

  • It is only illegal to increase rent on current tenants

  • Rent control can only be put on multi-unit buildings, not single homes

What would happen if passed?

If passed, Proposition 10 would get rid of the three regulations, and would enact the following:

  • Any apartment could be rent-controlled, not just ones built before 1995

  • Rent control could apply to new tenants, not just current ones

  • Rent control could also apply to individual homes instead of just apartment buildings

Proposition 10 does not mean that these regulations would automatically go into effect. It means that it would be up to local governments to determine what type of rent control they want for cities. 

What does my vote mean?

YES: Expand the ability for more rent control 

NO: Rent control would stay the same
