Tenant Petition Pre-Eviction Hearing

Only tenants who live within the Sacramento City limits and who have lived in the rental unit for more than 12 months (i.e., 12 months and one day) with the landlord’s consent are eligible for protection from eviction unless the landlord has what is known as “just cause.” For detailed information regarding the Pre-Eviction Hearing Process, please review the Administrative Procedures.

Landlord Fair Rate of Return Petition

If a landlord has or will incur costs for the maintenance and operation of the rental unit, for capital improvements required for health and safety, or for housing services, and the rent proceeds, including the Annual Rent Adjustment amount, are insufficient to reasonably cover such costs; a landlord can file a Landlord Fair Rate of Return Petition. For detailed information regarding the Fair Rate of Return Petition process, please review the Administrative Procedures.
