Rent Control Jurisdiction

Rent Control is a highly technical and tricky area of the law for both landlords and tenants. In unlawful detainer actions/evictions the slightest legal or statutory deviation from local rent control laws can control the outcome of your eviction/unlawful detainer proceedings. Rent control rules provide the framework for a landlord and tenants' rights and responsibilities in the eviction process. At Zakari Law, we have extensive knowledge and experience of rent control ordinances of the following cities: Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, and Beverly Hills. We are also very familiar with the tenant protection rules of Glendale and Pasadena.

In rent control jurisdictions, the most common conflicts between landlord and tenants are as follows:

  • Late payment or non-payment of rent
  • Unauthorized occupants
  • Unauthorized pets
  • Unauthorized alterations or repairs
  • Overcrowding
  • Technical Compliance by Landlords of Rent Ordinances
  • Removal of Units from the Rental Market (Per Ellis Act)
  • Vacancy Decontrol (Per Costa Hawkins)
  • Illegal rent increases
  • Tenant Habitability Plan
  • Relocation benefits
