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.
