Whether you buy or rent, are a landlord or tenant, just moving in or on your way out, here's the information you need to protect your home.

Enriching Lives

"I can only say thank you and hope you understand the gratitude I feel (for helping me save my home)." -- Luwethia Hyde, of Inglewood

Your Home

There are few things more precious than your home. The decisions you make regarding your home are very important. Whether you own a home or rent an apartment, let the Department of Consumer and Business Affairs be your partner.

If you are a renter or a landlord, we can help explain the laws about rent payments, leases, making repairs, late fees or returning deposits. We can tell you what to look for when you move in and guide you through the process of moving out.

If you are a homeowner, we have all the reliable answers you need. Make us your No. 1 source for free, trustworthy information for issues ranging from buying a home to understanding recorded documents to loan modifications. Choose a subject on the left to find the informational page that's best for you or your home.
