All of California is subject to California's "affordable housing" laws, but many cities don't implement that as a blanket "rent control" ordinance.  They meet the "affordability mandate" in other ways, such as "density bonuses", and required "affordable units" in larger developments, or paying into an "affordability fund" to build those units elsewhere.  There are covenant restrictions on the "affordable units".

Those "subsidy" laws really only drive prices up.

In any case, there are rental properties all across the State that are not subject to rent control.  But it is very dependent on local city and county laws.

I know Calabasas and Agoura Hills do not have rent control.

Santa Monica is very strongly a Rent Control Area so if you don't want Rent Control, you have to avoid Santa Monica. Area's without that I am aware of are:

 -El Segundo
- Long Beach
- Inglewood
- Hawthorne

I cannot speak to all of California. I can tell you however, that in the city of Hawthorne, Inglewood, Long Beach and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles have no rent control.

Santa Monica doesn't really want rent control and doesn't care much about affordability. With so much sunshine, they just don't care--plenty of takers as it is.
