City of Gardena California, No Rent Control. Rent Mediation, Yes.


The City of Gardena is another excellent example of a city within Los Angeles County that has not adopted Rent Control Laws, but is working very hard to protect Tenants and Renters Rights in the rapidly rising residential rental market.  Although Gardena does NOT have RENT CONTROL, Gardena has adopted Rent Mediation in order to create a system which works with both the tenant and the multifamily property owner.  According to the City of Gardena’s website here is some information regarding Rent Mediation we have cut and pasted below:

“The ordinance was designed to shield tenants from unreasonable rent increases while permitting the property owners to receive sufficient rent to maintain their rental units as well as receive a reasonable return on their investment.

In addition, the ordinance requires that a tenant receive a written notice of a rent increase at least thirty (30) days prior to the actual effective date of the increase if the increase is ten percent (10%) or less. If the rent increase is greater than ten percent (10%), the ordinance requires that a tenant receive a written notice of a rent increase at least sixty (60) days prior to the actual effective date of the increase. Mobile Home Park tenants must receive a ninety (90) day notice. All rent increases must also include a notice to the tenant of their right to mediation/hearing and that the tenant has ten (10) business days following receipt of the notice to file a mediation petition with the City in order to exercise their rights under Chapter 14 .04 of the Gardena Municipal Code.

If a tenant desires to file a request for mediation, he/she may do so by completing a “Request for Mediation” form and submitting it to the City Manager’s Office, Room 112 at 1700 W. 162nd Street. Within 30 days of filing, City staff and the Rent Mediation Board will review the request and schedule it for hearing typically within two weeks. For more information, contact the City Manager’s Office at (310) 217-9503 or visit City Hall, Room 112, 1700 W. 162nd Street, Gardena.”

Gardena California is a fantastic example of a well run city, working hard with an awesome community policing program, active Fair Housing Program and improving Public School System.

Rent Control Los Angeles YES, Rent Control Long Beach NO


As of the writing of this blog post Long Beach California is still not subject to RENT CONTROL as the City of Los Angeles.  Long Beach does have an incredible Section 8 Program assisting tenants and landlords and offers many rent mediation programs to help as well.  Both the City of Los Angeles and Long Beach have very dedicated City employees and Program managers working diligently to assist tenants with rising rents in a manner which also benefits the multifamily property owners.

The City of Los Angeles takes great pride in keeping an efficient, fair and financially symbiotic relationship between tenants and multifamily income property owners.  Rent Control helps landlords keep consistent rents with low vacancy rates and helps tenants offset the lack of housing and rapidly increasing rents in Southern California.
