Event Details


Join your fellow rental property owners & managers over lunch to share stories of what is happening locally with tenants and the rental market. We will induct the 2023 Board and announce the first winner of the Charles V. Eckert III Award for Exceptional Community Service.

It's become more complicated...and if you don't serve the notice properly, the Court will not give you a chance to correct the notice and proceed with any action against the tenant. 

Plus, in case of tenant displacement - improper service of the notice can now result in CRIMINAL charges. 

Yes, you read that correctly!

The City of Santa Barbara has recently allocated funding to inspect and impose criminal charges against anyone who does not provide proper notice regarding tenant displacement. 

Price, including lunch: Members $30. Non-members $75

NOTE: There is a parking lot next to the library building on Anapamu St.
