Chula Vista’s Tenant Protection Ordinance takes effect March 1

SAN DIEGO, CA - The City of Chula Vista’s new Tenant Protection Ordinance goes into effect on March 1. It's intended to close no-fault eviction loopholes, but some say it may also have some unintended consequences for landlords.

Along with limiting no-fault evictions, the ordinance provides more tenant relocation assistance and protects tenants from landlord harassment and retaliation.

“It also sets a precedent for other cities," said Jose Lopez, director of the San Diego Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE). “In San Diego County, we have probably the weakest tenant protection in the whole state. We’re the only major city who allows these types of evictions to continue to happen.”
