City of Sacramento changes mandatory Rental Housing Inspection Program and reduces annual fee
The Sacramento City Council amended its mandatory rental inspection ordinance last year. Thanks to RHA, the annual Rental Housing Inspection Program fee was reduced by $12 (from $28 per unit to $16 per unit) - a savings of 43%. In addition, rental owners who pass the initial inspection can self-certify their properties, but must follow certain procedures and use the proper forms, includng the new "Residents Right's Form". RHA can help you comply with the ordinance.

RHA opposition persuades fire district to put new property tax on hold
Stong opposition led by RHA Sacramento Valley persuaded the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District to put its proposed property tax assessment on hold. This action spared rental property owners from a new annual assessment of $14 to $30 per unit.The fire district had been seeking a special vote-by-mail election to gain approval of a new "Fire Suppression Benefit Assessment."
RHA was the first business group to oppose the assessment and others quickly followed, including the Sacramento Taxpayers Association and Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. The fire district agreed to meet with RHA before attempting any future property tax. Click here for more information.
