The California Apartment Association is working to protect ethical landlords from being unfairly punished under separate “anti-harassment” ordinances moving forward in Los Angeles and Long Beach.

The Los Angeles proposal aims to prevent landlords from taking a variety of steps considered by the city to be harassment, such as threatening to report a tenant to immigration authorities, refusing to accept lawful rent payments from a tenant, or retaliating against a renter for participating in a tenants union. Already, a robust state law protects tenants from harassment, and CAA is working to ensure that no ordinance can be misused for frivolous purposes.
