The California Apartment Assn. has published a comprehensive guide to California's rental laws, regulations and common-sense operating procedures.
Called "The California Rental Housing Reference Book," and nicknamed the "Gold Book," the guide provides information on rental agreements, marketing rental property, collection of rents, discrimination laws, eviction procedures, resident communications and requirements when there is a sale of rental property. It also contains more than 100 legal rental forms.
It can be purchased from the California Apartment Assn., 1107 9th St., Suite 1010, Sacramento 95814 or from any one of its 25 local affiliated associations such as the San Diego Apartment Assn.
