Price Gouging Protections Extended by the Governor

Published:  December 4, 2018

The Price Gouging protections under Penal Code 396 have been extended by the Governor through May 31, 2019.  This means that a landlord may not charge rent or increase rent more than ten percent (10%) above the price that was charged prior to the Declaration of Emergency on October 9, 2017.

If you believe that you have been the victim of price gouging, contact your local law enforcement agency to report such activity.  The Attorney General’s website has a FAQ regarding price gouging at https://oag.ca.gov/consumers/pricegougingduringdisasters.
