The State of California faces a long list of challenges, with the highest priority being housing affordability. In response to these challenges, the State Legislature has been very active in passing new laws. In 2017, Governor Jerry Brown signed 859 bills into law, many of which came into effect on January 1st, 2018. Other became effective immediately, while some new laws go into effect later this year. Many of the bills that were signed into law have an impact on the real estate community, with varying levels of significance. From new fees on real estate documents to reassigning the Department of Real Estate as a bureau under a new agency, real estate professionals should know about the changes in the law and how it impacts them.
To help educate the real estate community about these many changes, Brewer Offord & Pedersen LLP has published an e-book titled 2018 New Laws: The Essential Guide to New California Laws That Impact Real Estate and Lending. The 40-page publication provides readers a deep understanding about the new laws in 2018 — highlighting not just what changed, but why it changed, how it changed, and what the change means for you. The e-book covers 48 of the new laws that impact real estate in California, as well as an editorial about the legalization of recreational marijuana use that became effective on January 1st, 2018. No matter your role in the real estate community — whether a landlord, real estate broker, investor, HOA, homeowner, tenant, lender, REALTOR®, developer, contractor, or small business — you can learn about the laws relevant to you by downloading or reading a free copy of our e-book.
