Rent and eviction matters are currently governed by Ordinance 3148 (Rent Review, Rent Stabilization and Limitations on Evictions Ordinance) which was approved by the voters as Measure L1 in November 2016.

On June 6, 2017, the Alameda City Council adopted Ordinance 3180 which amends Ordinance 3148. The most noteworthy revisions provided by Ordinance 3180 are: (1) it eliminates “no cause” as a ground for eviction; and (2) it requires that if a tenant has a “fixed term” lease and that fixed term lease was renewed, the tenant is entitled to relocation payments if the tenant vacates at the end of the subsequent term.

Ordinance 3180 would have been effective July 6, 2017. However, a referendum petition was submitted to the Alameda City Clerk on June 26 which tolls the effectiveness of Ordinance 3180.
