California Lease Agreement Guarantee SealThe State of California has extremely comprehensive Landlord Tenant laws. For instance, California landlords are prohibited from requiring tenants to pay non-refundable fees (for example, non-refundable pet fees) when moving into a rental.

Our California Assist helps California landlords decipher regulations, and understand which rules apply to them. The California Assist instructions are highlighted in green as the landlord completes fields in the lease. They keep the landlord informed of obligations and ensure that the lease is California legal. California-required legal language is included in default lease text, and California addenda and disclosures are automatically attached to the document. In addition, this document also meets lease requirements for the cities of Anaheim, Bakersfield, Fresno, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Santa Ana, Sacramento and Stockton.

You may customize the California lease by adding special terms and conditions, and by attaching addenda that address specific lease issues, such as inspections, pets and early lease termination. Dozens of legal clauses, specifically written to minimize landlord exposure to litigation, can be added to the lease with simple clicks on Rules and Regulations options.
ezLandlordForms ezSign service is included in all state-specific leases at no extra cost. Landlords and tenants can add digital signatures to the lease and automatically receive signed copies along with a verified audit trail of signatures.

Los Angeles: In addition to ensuring that California state requirements are met, the Los Angeles city “Landlord Tenant Handbook for Rental Units Subject to the Rental Stabilization Ordinance” will supply critical information on terms that must be included in leases for the city.
