On April 13, 2018, the Governor issued Executive Order B-51-18 which extended the price gouging protections under Penal Code 396 through December 4, 2018.
With respect to rental housing, this means that property owners may not increase the price of rental housing by more than 10 percent of the rental price charged prior to the fires.
If you have been the victim of price gouging or wish to file a complaint, Complaints can be made on the District Attorney’s website at http://sonomacounty.ca.gov/District-Attorney/ r by calling (707) 565-5317. Please provide any documentation regarding the price gouging to the District Attorney’s Office.
