Author: Camila Alarcon
With about sixty days into the legislative session, several bills impacting real estate and zoning have survived their first chamber. The following summarizes key bills in two areas: local control and vacation and short-term rentals. (Click on each bill name to see the full bill text.)
- SB1147, a bill that imposes new limits on the sale of municipal properties, passed the Senate on a 16-14 vote, and is now heading to the House. The bill provides that for a property with a value of at least $50,000, the municipality must hire an independent appraiser to determine the sale or lease value, and post public notices of the proposed sale or lease for four weeks in a weekly publication and on the municipality’s website.

If you have, or have a child who has, a disability and the disability began before age 26, the disabled person can open a tax advantaged investment account that does not adversely affect any disability payments currently being received. If the individual with the disability does not receive disability-based benefits, there is a self-certification process so long as the disability meets the Social Security Administration’s standards and the disability causes “marked and severe functional limitations.”
The accounts, known as ABLE accounts, were authorized with the enactment of the Achieving a Better Life Experience (“ABLE”) Act of 2014.

Until recently, the California Corporations Code Section 1601 provided that a corporation’s shareholders had the right to inspect the “accounting books, records, and minutes of proceedings of the shareholders and the board and committees of the board of any domestic corporation, and of any foreign corporation keeping any such records in this state…”
In Innes v. Diablo Controls, 248 Cal.App.4th 139 (2016), the court opined that Section 1601 did not require that the records of corporations be brought into California for inspection if the corporation did not maintain the records in the state.
