    Renter's guide to Davis, CA

    Welcome to the gorgeous city of Davis, California! It's a very progressive and environmentally friendly city, with streets that are safe for cyclists and pedestrians. From the downtown area and its many great bars, restaurants, shops, and events to the UC-Davis campus, you'll never be short on things to keep you busy here.

    At 10 square-miles in size, Davis is 10 times smaller than nearby Sacramento, which is only 15 miles to the east. Davis is also 74 miles from San Francisco and 400 miles from Los Angeles.

    The weather in Davis can get awfully hot in the summer, with temperatures easily reaching into the upper 80s and 90s. But fortunately, there's not much humidity. Average winter temperatures are in the mid 50s to low 60s, though they can dip into the upper 30s at night. The city receives around 20 inches of rain annually.

    Tips for renting in Davis, CA

    Ready to put down roots in Davis? You'll love it here! First though, let's take a minute to get familiar with the local tenant laws.

    California allows for local rent control laws – but Davis doesn't have any. That means that your landlord is able to increase rent once your lease period is over.

    But they have to give at least 60 days notice if the increase is 10% or more.

    California law also allows a tenant to "repair and deduct" if the landlord fails to make vital repairs to your apartment. But there are some steps you need to take, so make sure to follow the full process.

    And always read your rental agreement in full before signing, since they can vary from place to place.
