Another Notice for Rent Controlled Properties in Los Angeles

Another proclamation has come down from the high priesthood called the Los Angeles Housing Department (LAHD).  The notice concerns those buildings built before 1978, commonly referred to as “rent controlled” buildings. Not surprisingly, the notice is about posting a notice – your tax dollars at work.  More specifically, the notice states that landlords whose buildings are subject to the Los Angeles Rent Stabilization Ordinance (LAHD RSO) must post a notice providing information about said Rent Stabilization Ordinance.  The notice must be posted in a visible location of the property – in the lobby, near a mailbox used by all residents, or in or near a public entrance to the property. LAHD will inspect properties and notify owners who fail to post the notice. Landlords have seven days to comply. One thing is for certain, if you don’t comply, you could be fined $250.00 per day.  Check it out at:
