California Demolition Notice
California Civil Code § 1940.6 requires Landlords to provide current and prospective Tenants with Notice of Intent to Demolish. When a Landlord applies to any public agency for a permit to demolish a residential unit, the Landlord must provide notice of this intent to demolish.
Specifically, the Landlord is required to Provide Notice of Intent to Demolish to:
- Tenants, including Tenants who have entered into a Lease Agreement but have not yet taken possession of the dwelling unit, prior to applying for the permit to demolish.
- Prospective Tenants prior to entering into a Lease Agreement.
- Prospective Tenants prior to requiring or accepting payment for an Application fee or any other fees.
- Prospective Tenants prior to requiring or accepting any writings that would initiate a Tenancy.
This Notice must provide the Tenants with the earliest possible date on which the Landlord expects the demolition to occur and the approximate date on which the Landlord will terminate the Tenancy. In no case may the demolition for which the Landlord has applied occur prior to the earliest approximate date Noticed.
Customize this Notice and provide it to current and prospective Tenants whenever you plan to apply for a permit to demolish a rental unit.
