    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.
