New California Landlord Rules

Don Melson of

informs us that California has passed Assembly Bill 976 which prohibits a landlord from asking if the prospective renter is an illegal alien.

No landlord or any agent of the landlord shall do any of the following: (1) Make any inquiry regarding or based on the immigration or citizenship status of a tenant, prospective tenant, occupant, or prospective occupant of residential rental property.

How can a landlord protect himself from an illegal immigrant who loses his job and is unable to pay the rent because he was caught being an illegal immigrant?

  1. This makes perfect sense; employers are required to ask or face fines while landlords are fined for asking. Yup, only in America…

  2. The same ways a landlord protects against anyone losing a job for any other reason.
