City Council meets TONIGHT at 7pm and we need your calls, emails and in-person comments. If you care about residential stability for tenants please join us! We expect City Council to OK a registry of rental units, a necessary foundation for a rent stabilization program. All are critical to the success of a reformed rent stabilization program for Beverly Hills.
My household just received our second consecutive annual near-10% increase and we’re mad as hell. We’ve had years of steady increases and now we are paying double what we did at move-in. Why? Because so-called rent stabilization policies in Beverly Hills don’t do the job of stabilizing rents. It fails to protect tenants from no-just-cause evictions. And it allows landlords a tool for the slow-motion eviction: a 10% annual increase. Ours is the only rent-stabilized city that extends no greater protections than state law for the majority of our tenants.
