Operational Advice Your membership includes free, unlimited counseling calls for assistance in all aspects of your rental business.
The SDCAA housing counselor is not an attorney but will give operational advice and direct SDCAA members to California Civil Code sections pertaining to landlord/tenant law and will assist in explaining the proper usage of our rental forms. You are advised to consult with an attorney before taking any action. SDCAA member attorney referrals are available upon request.
