In response to the current criticism of the inequity and inefficiency characteristic of landlord-tenant law, the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws has proposed, and the California Legislature is presently considering, a Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. This comment examines by means of comparison with existing California law the effect which adoption of this Act would have on landlord-tenant relations in California. The author concludes that the Uniform Act, if adopted, would not make any significant substantive changes in California landlord-tenant law; rather it would promote clarity and understanding of the law with the result being a reduction in the frequency of litigation.
