Waterbeds

Waterbeds


Question:
I am an apartment manager and the owner of the building does not want waterbeds in the units. The property is only three years old and I recall there is a law which requires that we allow waterbeds. What specifically does the law say?

Answer:
California law requires owners and managers to accept waterbeds and liquid-filled furniture, but only if the renter abides by standard set-up, maintenance and removal procedures; has insurance protecting the owner in the event it causes damage; and the weight of the waterbed will not harm the structure of the building. The law is found in California Civil Code Section 1940.5 and allows the owner to increase the deposit by one-half month's rent.
