    Tips for renting in Chula Vista, CA

    How can you not want to call this gorgeous city by the sea home? But before signing a lease, let's get you up to speed on a couple local tenant laws.

    California doesn't have rent control, but if your landlord wants to raise your rent at the end of a lease, they're required to provide 30 to 60 days notice – depending on the size of the increase.

    California law also requires landlords to perform a walk through of the property two weeks before you move out. This ensures that you're aware of any issues and have time to fix them.

    Of course, all rental agreements are slightly different, so make sure to read yours thoroughly before signing.
