On April 11, 2017, the Union City City Council approved an Ordinance that adds Chapter 5.50 “Residential Landlord and Tenant Relations” to the City’s municipal code. The Residential Landlord and Tenant Relations Ordinance goes into effect on May 10, 2017.
The Ordinance regulates most residential rental units in the City and:
1. Requires landlords to provide a specific reason for terminating a lease;
2. Prohibits landlords from engaging in specific harassment activities; and
3. Requires landlords to notify tenants of their rights under the Ordinance in all of the following situations:
o Within 60 days of the Ordinance effective date (May 10, 2017)
o When entering into a new lease or rental agreement;
o When renewing a lease or rental agreement; and
o When issuing a notice of termination
The City will also be holding two informational meetings on the Ordinance that are open to the public. Both meetings will cover the same information.
