Landlords can’t collect rent, yet L.A. waste haulers can — and are — increasing fees
While Los Angeles has left many landlords unable to collect any rent during the pandemic, it’s now given waste haulers the go-ahead to increase fees on those very rental property owners and other businesses. And those fees are jumping up to 6.15%
The California Apartment Association has objected to the city’s apparent double standard. While trash-haulers raise prices, landlords face a stringent eviction moratorium, a freeze on rent increases, and in many circumstances, a prohibition on collecting any rent at all.
