L.A. County may follow city’s lead on evictions, rent freeze
Just days after the city of Los Angeles imposed a COVID-19 related rent freeze and strict eviction moratorium, L.A. county appears poised to do the same.
The County Board of Supervisors is now reviewing steps taken by the city of L.A. for possible implementation throughout the nation’s most populous county, including within city limits.
This review comes after L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti on Monday ordered a prohibition on any rent increases at the city’s roughly 624,000 rent controlled units. This past Friday, the City Council approved a far-reaching eviction moratorium that prohibits all no-fault evictions and gives tenants up to 12 months after the local COVID-10 emergency period to pay any back rent.
CAA is calling on owners or rental property in the city of L.A. and throughout the county to contact elected officials and voice their concerns.
