AB 3260 Provides Tenants with Alternatives to Paying Full Security Deposits

California AB 3260 is a bill that would require a landlord to authorize a tenant, as an alternative to paying the full amount of a security deposit before taking possession of the premises, to satisfy security by:
  • Obtaining and maintaining rental security insurance coverage or surety bond or
  • Paying the amount of the security in monthly installments, subject to specified requirements.
The bill is currently in committee and has been ordered to a third hearing. The Apartment Association is urging housing providers to contact their assembly person as soon as possible to represent a NO vote. View Bill Status…
