Inglewood City Council imposes temporary rent cap, ‘just cause’ policies
The Inglewood City Council this week temporarily capped rent increases at 5 percent and imposed an interim “just cause” eviction measure.
The rent moratorium and eviction control ordinances are scheduled to last 45 days but can be renewed for up to a year by the council. The rent cap applies to pre-1995 apartments.
The council’s steps Tuesday came in response to a survey conducted by the city that tracked rent increases over 25 percent. City staff will return with a comprehensive report on the issue in next 30 days.
