If you own an income property in Los Angeles It is very possible that it may fall under the RSO (Rent Stabilization Ordinance).

As an Owner it would behoove you to learn and understand what this means. I am hopeful that most LA city landlords follow and understand the ordinance.

However if you are a Landlord and would like more info, please contact us directly. ( We are always happy to share our knowledge)

 Legal reasons to proceed with a tenant at-fault eviction

  1. Non-Payment of rent (Rent is not received by the date specified in your rental agreement)

  2. Lease Violation (Tenant must receive a written notice from you to fix violation prior to eviction)

  3. Nuisance ( This would include damage to rental unit or unreasonable interference or harm to other residents)

  4. Illegal Purpose ( Using the unit for anything other than residential use. This includes gang or drug activity)

  5. Failure to renew lease ( Lease agreement or rental agreement expired and tenant refuse to sign a new one with similar terms)

  6. Denial of access (If your tenant refuses you or any agent/property manager/vendor reasonable access to unit. This also includes access when a property is being sold)

  7. Unapproved Tenant ( Any person not listed in original contract at the end of lease is considered a sub tenant and needs to be approved  by owner)

  8. Violation of Tenant Habitability Plan ( The tenant is interfering with the ability to perform PR repairs or Seismic retrofit work OR fails to pay rent increase, if applicable)


Legal reasons to proceed with a tenant NO-Fault eviction 

(These evictions require a Landlord Declaration with HCIDLA and the tenant may be eligible to receive relocation assistance for an eviction)

  3. Compliance with  government order (notice requiring the rental unit vacant)
