State Regulations

State regulations are rules or orders issued by government departments or agencies to carry out the intent of state law. These same agencies also have the power to hear disputes and enforce their rules and regulations. Think of agencies such as the state Department of Motor Vehicles or the Franchise Tax Board. Many of the laws that come out of these agencies are not found in the California codes mentioned above. They are published in the form of codes of regulations or administrative codes. Regulations can have an important effect on the outcome of cases.

Local Ordinances

An ordinance is a municipal statute, passed by a city council or similar agency, about matters not already covered by federal or state law. Ordinances commonly deal with zoning issues in a community, building standards, and safety matters of the municipality.
Local ordinances may be very important in unlawful detainer (eviction) cases, for example, since the town or city may have rent control laws that have a significant effect on the case. Access available online California local ordinances.
