In December 2017, my husband and I moved to the Santa Monica apartment complex, located just south of the iconic Sunset Strip, as a single adult.
It was the perfect choice, as I was able to work from home and live with my children and enjoy a more spacious apartment.
I was not alone.
Other single parents are finding their apartment-buying strategies limited by landlord restrictions, according to the LA Times.
While many renters are willing to do the bare minimum to secure a place, others have found that the extra cash they’re looking for does not always buy them the kind of space they want.
Here are some things to keep in mind when deciding where to live in the LA area: Landlords do not rent to people who are homeless.
Renters can only use their property as long as it’s rented to them.
If they leave, the landlord can only recover the rent they paid to the tenant.
Rent control is not in effect in the Los Angeles area, and landlords can evict tenants for anything from minor violations to outright theft.
A landlord cannot require you to pay for a monthly rent or make you pay for utilities.
You do not have to pay utilities, such as electricity, gas, water or even security deposits.
The landlord cannot evict you for unpaid rent or property taxes.
This includes taxes on your house or apartment, and utilities that come out of your rent.
There is no tenant association in Los Angeles.
Your landlord may require that you pay a fee to join their association.
The LA Housing Authority (LAHA) and the Los Angelenos Apartment Association (LAAA) both provide rental housing and assistance programs for renters.
While these programs are often free and do not require a landlord to rent to you, there is still a fee that must be paid to join.
The fees vary from $100 to $200 per month depending on the location of your home.
You may have to contribute to the association’s membership or pay an additional $100 per month if you are on a fixed-term lease.
You will have to sign up for the association and pay dues, but the association will not evict you.
The Los Angeles Homeless Resource Center (LALHRCC) provides information on how to find housing options in your area.
LALHRCP has listings for housing on Airbnb, and the website lists a number of agencies in the area.
You can call one of these agencies for more information on the program.
However, some agencies will charge you more than what you are paying to rent.
If you’re looking to rent an apartment, you can find information on what to expect in Los Angles rental market on LALRR.
LABORATORY PROBLEMS A landlord who is unable to accommodate tenants who have limited income is also unable to offer housing.
This is because they cannot afford to provide a quality living environment.
If a landlord is unable or unwilling to provide an adequate space, then the landlord is unlikely to find a tenant to live there.
LALA and LABA both provide information on housing discrimination.
LA LABA has information on hiring and firing discrimination cases and discrimination in landlord-tenant laws.
