Know Your Rights
An owner of a housing accommodation may not deny a person the right to rent property because of race, color, creed, religion, sexual persuasion, national origin or ancestry, or because a person is blind, visually handicapped or physically disabled (California Fair Housing Act of 1992).
Know Your Responsibilities
Choose Roommates Wisely
If all roommates sign one lease, each is responsible for the entire amount of rent. Ask to sign a separate lease so you’re not responsible for your roommate’s share of the rent in case he or she leaves.
Do not be overly noisy if you have neighbors who live nearby. You do not want them to complain to your landlord or the police. It is reasonable for neighbors to expect quiet before 8 a.m. and after 10 p.m. on weeknights. Check to see if your living arrangement has its own quiet hours.
