Los Angeles County has voted to make permanent rent and eviction controls over unincorporated Los Angeles County. Some of the areas this includes is: East Los Angeles; Hacienda Heights; Altadena; Montrose; La Crescenta; City Terrace; East San Gabriel; parts of Whittier; and Rowland Heights to name a few.

The rent amount that can be annually increased will be adjusted annually and applies to all buildings built before 1995. It does not include single family homes.

The temporary ordinance still is in effect which limits rent increases to 3.00%. Further, for any notices to perform or quit, a 10 Day Notice is required. All landlords need “cause” to evict meaning a landlord cannot serve a 30 or 60 day notice to quit.

Landlords in unincorporated Los Angeles County should be made aware of these changes as they dramatically affect their rights to evict a tenant. Please contact Attorney Anthony Marinaccio at 818-839-5220 if you have questions regarding the new ordinance.
