Decision on controversial renters' protections in Chula Vista postponed

CHULA VISTA, Calif. — After hours of public comment both for and against, Chula Vista's city council decided to postpone voting on a controversial proposal that would strengthen tenants' protections. 

This ordinance would essentially strengthen protections for tenants who are being forced out of their rental units through no fault of their own.

These no-fault evictions include a property owner who wants to undertake substantial renovations; remove the property from the rental market; or have a family member move into the unit.

Under the ordinance, in most cases, landlords would have to provide 60 days notice to renters to vacate and provide relocation assistance.
