very so often I hear complaints about the cost of a Southern California Rental Housing Association (SCRHA) membership. I understand landlords must prioritize the dollars they spend to pay rising utility, maintenance and repair costs, property taxes, and other costs associated with operating a rental property. Landlords in California deal with thinner margins because costs rise faster than their revenue. Suppliers (Vendors), too, are trying to operate their business efficiently, remain profitable, and expand their customer base. Suppliers are always determining which business membership organizations they need to belong to so they maximum exposure to new customers and increase profitability. Everyone is trying to make dollars stretch further, even in this growing economy. But, I can’t emphasize enough why being a Southern California Rental Housing Association member is one of the most important investments a person or business can make if they are in the rental housing industry.

2019

could be the beginning of a Perfect Storm for California’s Rental Housing Industry. We could already be in the Eye of the Storm, but we won’t really know how severe the storm’s impact will be until September. The forecast could be much worse in 2020. We will take part in challenging a statewide ballot initiative that seeks to change Proposition 13 by incorporating ‘Split Roll,’ which would remove tax protections for commercial properties. We could be fighting another proposed statewide initiative that would alter Costa-Hawkins and allow local governments in California to adopt their own individual rent control laws. Supporters are currently gathering signatures to get the initiative qualified for the November 2020 ballot. We will likely be fighting many of the same bills that became 2-year bills this legislative session. The forecast maybe dire, if not downright dismal. But, this is not time to abandon ship. Now’s the time to ‘batten down the hatches,’ secure the sails and masts, and ride out the storm. We have faced many storms in the past, and we will likely face more in the future as long Sacramento fails to address the state’s housing crisis. Sacramento, too, could be in the center of its perfect storm as long it continues to flounder aimlessly without adopting meaningful policies to increase supply. However, every storm passes. What follows is sunny, blue skies and calm conditions. Hang tight and remain on your present course – there is no cause to take drastic action now. We will continue working to defeat AB 1482 which would place a cap on rental rates increases statewide. The bill still needs to pass several more hurdles before it reaches the Governor’s desk for his signature or veto. Be prepared to contact your State Senator and State Assembly Member and ask them to OPPOSE AB 1482. This bill will affect all

While I have your attention… Important reminder to ALL OWNERS and PROPERTY MANAGERS who operate rental properties in the City of San Diego. San Diego’s SOURCE OF INCOME DISCRIMINATION ORDINANCE IS NOW ENFORCEABLE AS OF AUGUST 1, 2019. As you know, the Association has been holding FREE classes about the ordinance since February. Are you complying with the ordinance? Not knowing about the ordinance won’t protect you if you are caught violating it. Here are a few provisions in the ordinance: • It is illegal for a landlord to “make, print, publish, advertise, or disseminate in any way” that they will not accept applicants who use any kind of Housing Assistance or Payment Vouchers like Section 8 or Veteran Affairs Supported Housing (VASH) vouchers. • Refusing to enter into a tenancy because the tenant uses housing payment voucher. • It is illegal under the ordinance to terminate, interrupt, or add restrictions to the tenancy if the tenant is using a Housing Assistance/Payment Voucher. • Landlords caught violating the ordinance could face fines and other legal action.

RUBS Regulations: What You Need to Know

By Emily Landes, Livable With utility bills on the rise and submetering systems often cost-prohibitive, many property owners are considering ratio utility billing systems (RUBS). Instituting RUBS is an inexpensive way to make tenants financially responsible for their usage and incentivize conservation. Although RUBS have many benefits, owners are often concerned about how to legally institute the program in their buildings. The good news is that RUBS is legal throughout San Diego County (Santa Monica is the closest municipality with a prohibition on RUBS). For more answers to your frequently asked RUBS questions, we turned to landlord-tenant attorney John List with Pahl & McCay, which has offices in San Jose and Los Angeles.

Q

: What are the biggest concerns landlords have about beginning a RUBS program, and how do you respond to those concerns?

John List: One of the largest concerns we deal with is how to communicate with residents regarding the implementation of a RUBS program. We suggest having a clear communication strategy for residents that explains the goals of the program are to make residents aware of the costs of water—a precious resource in California—and providing an incentive to conserve. Additionally, clarification should be made that the program passes through the costs of the utilities actually used by residents. It is not a profit center for a landlord. Local controls on RUBS can vary widely from no restriction to the outright prohibition that we see in San Jose, Richmond, and Santa Monica. Our office will ensure that there are no hidden regulations that could potentially derail a RUBS program or cause liability for the property owner, providing a risk analysis where the regulations are not necessarily clear. After the passage of SB7, governing submeters, there

have been many questions about using RUBS in a master-metered property with water submeters. We recommend that any property owner with submeters comply with SB7. If there is a desire to change billing methods, contact an attorney about potential options.

Q

: How can RUBS be enforced in rent-controlled jurisdictions? JL: Since there are no statewide definitions of RUBS, complying with local rent controls requires a careful reading of the laws governing the control. In a majority of rent-controlled jurisdictions, any money paid to a property owner by a resident is defined to be a part of “rent,” even if it is based on a resident’s actual use of a utility. As long as there is no outright prohibition of RUBS, the billing practice may be phased in upon turnover of units. When RUBS is implemented, the fluctuation of costs must be capped to avoid violating any restriction on the number of rent increases in a 12-month August 2019 socalrha.org | 7


period and any increases over the permitted amount. This cap should be reasonably related to the actual costs. It should be clearly communicated that the point of the cap is to benefit residents by passing on savings when costs are lower than the cap.

Q

: What are some best- and worst-case scenarios you have seen when people institute a RUBS system? JL: The best-case scenario begins when a property owner consults with vendors knowledgeable of the regulatory landscape of RUBS. When the owner has a clear goal and works with the vendor to put together a program and then properly document the mechanics of the program, there is less chance that costly mistakes are made. In the end, there is a functional program specific to the property with an enforceable

agreement to bind residents to participate. The worst thing I’ve seen is when a property owner calls me after putting a RUBS billing system in place and is asking why they are getting push back and refusals to pay from residents. Upon reviewing the program, it is clear that the owner had taken generic forms from the internet and just had the residents sign them. The signed forms were missing pages or were not fully completed and omitted key terms that explained how residents were being charged. Residents were getting bills that were high and did not explain the basis of the costs. Further, there had been no communication with the residents about what was happening, so there was no goodwill with the residents to comply. This owner had to recreate

new documents based on the actual way residents’ share was being calculated, forgo unpaid amounts, and wait for lease terms to end before implementing the corrected documents.

Q

: Any misconceptions you often hear about RUBS that you’d like to clear up? JL: The use of RUBS does not cause a property owner to be regulated by the Public Utilities Commission. As long as a property owner is not making a profit from the passthrough of costs, the PUC has ruled that the pass-through does not make the property owner a utility provider. A common mistake is using RUBS to bill for gas used to heat central boilers when there is no method for isolating the use of the gas by the central boiler. Contact an attorney to discuss the ability to use RUBS for common central facilities. A Final Disclaimer The discussion above is general in nature and is not intended to be legal advice. It is intended to assist owners and operators in understanding this issue area, but it may not apply to specific circumstances or business situations. Owners may need to consult applicable federal, state, and local laws and applicable regulatory agreements for any specific project or concern. For specific legal advice, consult an attorney.

Carlsbad could impose Moratorium on Plan does not constrain public access and parking to the beach areas. The modified plan can take effect Building The Carlsbad City Council has been mulling over whether or not it should approve a temporary moratorium on all development in the city’s Barrio and Village neighborhoods. Councilmember Barbara Hamilton at a June 11 City Council meeting suggested the City Council should have a discussion to determine if a moratorium is viable. Carlsbad City Staff presented information to the Council in June and July about the Village Master Plan and provided options regarding a proposed moratorium on development for future discussion. Carlsbad City Council will decide if it will accept proposed changes offered by California Coastal Commission regarding the Village- Barrio Master Plan.

as early as late 2019 if the City Council accepts the Commission’s recommendations.

The Coastal Commission in June rejected elements of the local coastal programs pertaining to the Village Master Plan. The Coastal Commission said it would conditionally accept elements that apply to the Village Master Plan Coastal Zones if the city accepts the Commission’s 23 recommendations.

California Civil Code allows city governments to adopt an interim ordinance to prevent all and any developments that could conflict with the city’s General Plan. The moratorium would last fortyfive days if the City Council adopts the urgency ordinance. But, the ordinance could be extended up to ten months and 15 days and could be extended again for an additional one year if properly noticed. The moratorium could apply to proposed projects and projects already granted approval by the city. However, the moratorium also requires four-fifths

The Commission recommended that Carlsbad create a new Village-Barrio Master Plan merging the Village and Barrio areas and add several other parcels. The recommendation is to ensure the modified Master

The Village Master Plan remains a controversial issue because it would allow building heights up to forty-five feet. City Staff also asked the city council to provide more direction regarding the implementation of the Village Master Plan. The Carlsbad City Council will vote on August 20 to decide if it will accept the Commission’s proposed modifications to the Barrio and Village Master Plans. The Council also might consider adopting an urgency ordinance that would impose a 45-day moratorium on all new development.

Many opponents attended the hearing to express that the moratorium is wrong and unnecessary. Some argued the moratorium was not warranted given that the city only approves around 400 units a year. Others contended that a moratorium would affect low-income residents looking for homes and questioned why the city would stop approving projects during a statewide housing crisis and impede the city from reaching its state housing mandates.

The 45-day moratorium does not affect permitted vacation rentals already registered with the city or applications for rentals already submitted to the city. The council said the action was necessary to give a city task force time to review the city’s vacation rental regulations and enforcement policies.

short-term rentals applications. Supporters argued vacation rentals provide the city with new revenue and that the city should be doing more to focus on nuisance rentals, while opponents argued that vacation rentals are affecting the quality of life of residential neighborhoods. According to the city, there were 36 complaints filed on 22 short-term rental properties in the first quarter of this year, with most of the complaints concentrated on six specific rentals. Under present rules, vacation rental operators must obtain a business and a rental license from the city and get a letter of approval from their governing Home Owners Association. Vacation rental operators must renew their license every year, undergo a city fire and healthy safety inspection prior to its operation, and notify all residents in writing within one hundred feet of the rental. The city can presently fine operators up to $500 per violation if the operator fails to address issues like noise, unruly guests, or the unit’s condition. Operators must be available twenty-four (24) hours/ day, seven (7) days/week and be able to respond

within forty-five (45) minutes once a complaint is made. The city may impose a fine up to $500 on people who file a false complaint against the vacation rental. Unlicensed vacation rentals caught operating in the city can face fines up to $5,000. Cathedral City has stopped accepting new vacation rental applications while the moratorium remains in effect. In the meantime, a city vacation rental task force will meet to review the city’s existing vacation rental policies to determine if additional or stronger policies and enforcement measures are needed. The group is expected to return to the city council later this month with its findings and recommendations.

Lawsuit against San Diego’s Pure Water Project could add Delays and Cost

San Diego’s endeavor to incorporate advanced water purification technology to augment its drinking water supply is in legal limbo stemming from a lawsuit filed by a contractor trade industry group. The San Diego City Council in 2018 wanted all Pure Water construction contracts to have union-friendly language. In an agreement between the City Council

August 2019 socalrha.org | 13


and Mayor Kevin Faulconer, two of the eleven contracts included language requiring contractors to use union apprentices. Associated General Contractors (AGC), a trade industry group representing non-union builders and contractors, in response, filed a lawsuit contending the compromise agreement violates Proposition A. San Diego voters approved Proposition A in 2012 prohibiting the city from requiring Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) in the city’s construction project contracts. In late June, the City of San Diego tried to argue in Superior Court that Proposition A did not apply to the Pure Water projects. However, the Superior Court Judge ruled in favor of the AGC placing an injunction on the city contracts that included union friendly language. While the ruling only affects one of a dozen Pure Water projects, the project in question is a $400 million water treatment plant. The injunction means the project could cost the city up to an additional $4 million per month while the issue is being resolved. While the conflict of non-union versus union contractors is not new, the impact of the lawsuit on San Diego’s transition with advanced purified water and how the city drafts city contracts in the future, is significant. It could also affect San Diego’s ability to get state funding in the future since state guidelines require PLAs in order for local government to receive state money.

that would allow developers to build a 264-unit apartment complex instead of a school in Scripps Ranch. The Scripps Mesa Apartment project will also designate a significant portion of the units to affordable ones. The site was originally to be the future site of Innovations Academy, but the Monarch Group who presently owns the property decided to move the Academy to another location and seek the City’s approval to build an affordable residential project. The San Diego City Council voted to approve the project and allow the private developer to apply for affordable housing loans to finance the project. 53 units of the 264-unit project will be affordable units. The project will have 18 one-bedroom units, 29 twobedroom units, and 6 three-bedroom units that will rent for $713, $836, and $909 per month, respectively. The arrangement allows the project to achieve 20 percent affordable units. Construction on the site is expected to begin in 2020 and to be completed in 2022.

The ruling essentially stops construction of Pure Water projects until both agree to a decision, but the decision also will impact how the city writes contracts for projects moving forward. AGC argues union-friendly contracts hurt non-union apprentices, and if the city continues to push for labor-friendly agreements, local non-union apprentices could lose out on millions of dollars in future city contracts. The decision could affect major construction projects around the region as well. More lawsuits could be in store for other projects that favor union apprentices.

All policy committees must report all bills to either the fiscal committees or to the floor. If bills do not meet the deadline, they will become two-year bills (with some exceptions).

SB 329 would change that by expanding the definition of source of income to include housing subsidies paid by the government directly to landlords. SCRHA has always supported the voluntary participation in Section 8. And has supported efforts to make the process more efficient. However, we have opposed, and killed, bills requiring mandatory participation. The author has said her bill would simply stop blanket policies against taking Section 8 tenants and require landlords to treat voucher holders like all other applicants. She has also insisted that her bill would not force owners to take vouchers or sign government contracts. However, the author has declined to accept amendments stating specifically that property owners would not have to sign a federal government Section 8 contract

MULTIFAMILY FEE SURVEY 2019

The Southern California Rental Housing Association’s Multifamily Fee Survey for the San Diego region posts information on assessed fees and other housing data for each jurisdiction in the San Diego region. The Association mailed questionnaires in May to each city and the County of San Diego in the San Diego Region asking jurisdictions for information about its housing stock, current information on sewer, trash, and water rates for residential properties, and if the rates will change in the Fiscal Year or Calendar Year, 2019-2020. The responses on the following pages were submitted by all of the cities in the region. Please note that the information is accurate as of the printing of this publication, but may be subject to change. Members can log on to the member portal at socalrha.org to access the 2019 Multifamily Fee Survey for the San Diego region.

Recent Quakes Spark New Concerns Over Earthquake Safety

© Joe Sohm | Dreamstime.com

Determine your personal risks with a simple engineering study By: Ali Sahabi, Optimum Seismic, Inc. Last month’s 6.4- and 7.1-magnitude earthquakes were the largest this state has seen in the past 20 years. Thankfully, due to the remoteness of the Ridgecrest area where they struck, there were no casualties and relatively little destruction. What if they happened here in San Diego? Earthquakes of this size could occur anywhere within the state’s intricate web of volatile fault lines that crisscross our landscape. Clearly, with a more densely populated region filled with structures at risk of failing in an earthquake, the scenario here would have played out much differently. The closer you are to a fault, the

more likely you are to be impacted by seismic activity. Here in San Diego, the Rose Canyon Fault is our most ominous threat, but danger also looms from the San Andreas, San Jacinto, and Elsinore Faults. It’s smart to have an engineering study done to assess the stability of the structure and its likelihood to remain habitable under extreme seismic shaking to find out the risk of the next earthquake damaging your apartment. The science behind the numbers Engineering for both new and existing structures relies on hard data, mathematics, and fact. An engineering study will identify the risks and the most effective way to fortify a building, based

not only on the composition of the structure but the quality of the ground it stands on. If your structure is vulnerable to damage, engineering studies can also identify opportunities to minimize impacts on parking spaces, tenants, and other concerns. • Engineering studies are designed to meet the requirements of the building code as specified in an ordinance • They pinpoint the precise scope of work to be done so apartment owners can use that information to get multiple bids on a project that is mathematically and technically verified to work • Well-prepared engineering studies avoid permitting delays August 2019 socalrha.org | 45


and/or the need for costly revisions later on • Doing the job right helps to reduce liabilities, should something go wrong About the process The first step in completing a thorough engineering study is to create what is called “as-built” drawings of the structure. These illustrations indicate all of the details of the building. Everything, from the spacing between the windows to the locations of the walls and columns, is factored into the design of the project. SCRHA Ad - 04-24-19.pdf 1 4/24/2019 4:43:16 PM

The benefits of a detailed and complete engineering plan are clear: • Proper engineering optimizes the cost of a retrofit • It minimizes the disturbance to the building occupants • And it provides better performance with a retrofit that follows its plan The State Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists maintains a database of the names of individuals with professional licenses with the state. Visit www.bpelsg.ca.gov for

more information. If the name you’re searching for isn’t there, call 1-866-780-5370 to make sure the omission is not due to a clerical error. Finally, make sure the engineering firm you choose has sufficient experience in retrofits that reflect the building type of your property. Contact multiple references on the company’s performance and verify that the firm completed at least three projects similar to yours in the past year. It’s best to find a company that offers in-house engineering, steel fabrication, and construction to ensure a seamless transition through every step in the process. A successful earthquake retrofit requires quality engineering, steel fabrication, and construction. But a tenant-friendly attitude, adaptability to the needs of the people who live and work in the building, and adherence to a tenant habitability plan are other essentials that can make your retrofit a successful experience. Start yours with an engineering study. Earthquake retrofits are only as solid as the research and data behind them. Make sure yours is done right.
