Renter's Guide to San Jose

While Los Angeles and San Francisco tend to claim a good deal of the fame from the other California cities, San Jose is a rich, vibrant center of culture and commerce, with arguably the most beautiful weather and architecture in the country to boot.

San Jose is the seat of Santa Clara County, as well as the largest city in both Northern California and the Bay Area. As of 2016, San Jose is the third most populous city in California after LA and San Diego. At only 55 miles from San Francisco and 59 miles from Berkeley—less than one hour’s drive—San Jose is truly at the heart of Northern California.

San Jose is prized for its position as a hub of the technology industry, its proximity to the thriving tech industries of Silicon Valley and San Francisco, and its corresponding affluence and high concentration of young professionals. Time Magazine ranks San Jose as the #1 city in the United States for jobs.

The climate makes the work environment even more inviting. The city enjoys an average 301 days of sunshine per year and an average annual temperature of 60.5°F.

    Tips for Renting in San Jose

    California law gives tenants a head start in many aspects of the apartment rental process. For instance, you cannot be locked out of your rental unit at the end of the notice of eviction if you have not found a place to move. In this case the court will require you to explain in writing within a given timeframe, usually 5 days, why you have not vacated the premises.

    Rent increases cannot be instituted by a landlord during the period of the rental agreement. In the state of California, landlords are required to disclose information on utilities provided as well as services in the area that provide these utilities in the rental agreement or lease.

    Tenants’ rights are heavily protected by law, such as against landlords retaliating against tenants for complaints about the conditions of their living space.

    California landlords must provide at least 30 days’ notice before increasing rent, and cannot raise rents as a form of discrimination.
