The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors will vote Tuesday on extending rent control and creating other important tools for L.A. county including Altadena and unincorporated East Pasadena.
The Board last year voted on a Temporary Rent Stabilization Ordinance for eligible rental units in the county’s unincorporated areas. The local law, which went into effect on December 20, 2018 established limits on rent increases and extended eviction protections.
The county ordinance also voided rent increases over three percent in effect after September 11, 2018. If a renter already paid a rent increase over three percent, the ordinance mandated that any overpayment must be returned. Property owners may either pay this back in one lump sum or issue a credit against future rent due over a six-month period.
