    California tenants will have a new avenue to take in people at risk of homelessness with permission from their landlord under a new law taking effect next year.

    The measure is one of 13 bills Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Thursday aimed at alleviating the state’s homelessness crisis.

    The new law, AB 1188, will allow a tenant and landlord to override an existing lease agreement and let a person in danger of being homeless move into their unit. The landlord could increase rent as part of the agreement. The arrangement would be governed largely by existing tenant-landlord law, but with exceptions to let the tenant evict the at-risk person on short notice. Tenants will be able to use the new process to take in vulnerable people from 2020 through 2024.

    Not sure that this is a good law. Many of the homeless are either mentally ill or are drug addicts. These people need special help to deal with the mental illness or with their drug addiction.
