What a Fiduciary Should Know About New Rental Laws & How To Use ADU’s To Add Value & Generate Income

This presentation is an overview of the expansive Statewide changes to Landlord-Tenant law and the implementation of statewide rent control as well as how to use ADU’s to generate income and add value. In response to changing laws, individual counties and cities are reviewing their regulations and rewriting local rules. The speakers will explain what every fiduciary needs to know to comply with the new laws and how these regulations impact both the management and sale of income producing properties. This entertaining presentation uses case studies to illustrate common scenarios, giving you the tools needed to manage issues like how to properly give notice, evict family members, remove squatters, manage non-paying tenants, arrange for a sheriff’s lockout, and show property when the tenants do not want to cooperate. This presentation is necessary for anyone managing non-owner-occupied real property including single family and multi-family.
