Q: What is Proposition 21?
A: Proposition 21 is an initiative on California’s November ballot that will repeal the current statewide Costa-Hawkins law that mandates how local governments can implement rent control measures. Under the proposition, cities and counties with rent control will prevent owners from raising rents to the market rate upon vacancy and vastly increase the number of units that can be controlled by rental boards.
