    Renter's guide to Lancaster, CA

    Lancaster is a city in the northern section of Los Angeles County, in what is known as the Antelope Valley of the Mojave Desert in California. Lancaster lays 65 miles northwest of Hollywood, 90 miles southeast of Bakersfield, and 70 miles north of Downtown Los Angeles.

    The city is actually what’s known as a charter city, meaning its government is defined by the city’s charter instead of by regional, state, or national laws. Lancaster is also part of a twin-city complex with Palmdale, its neighbor to the south, and is the 31st largest city in the state of California.

    The city has a cold semi-arid steppe climate, making the weather in Lancaster nice and warm for most of the year. This type of climate is less hot and has more rain than a typical arid climate, giving residents hot summers and very mild winters, with average high temperatures in the mid-50s.

    Tips for renting in Lancaster, CA

    Renters rights here fall under California state law, although there are some tips to renting in Lancaster that can be very helpful for new residents. One is the California law on security deposits, which restricts landlords from charging tenants a security deposit that exceeds two months’ rent. And the other is that California residents must be given 30-days’ notice to leave the premises if the terms of the lease have not been broken by the tenant, and 60-days’ notice if the tenant has been living on the property for more than one year.
