Housing Protection Legal Noticing
HOUSING PROTECTION LEGAL NOTICING
Housing Protection Legal Noticing: In July 2020, the Housing Protection Department disseminated an information letter along with the required legal notifications for Landlords to provide to tenants informing them of laws that govern their rent increase and outline tenant just-cause evictions protections.
Any lease agreement executed after July 2020 must include the written verbiage in the initial lease agreement, or the required verbiage must be provided on an addendum.
The Division has created the Fully Regulated and Exempt forms for the Landlord's convenience. If you elect not to utilize the City’s legal notifications, your noticing shall be no less than 12-point type and be subject to California Civil Code Section 1632(b)(3).
The two categories below contain the required Legal Notification an owner must provide a tenant in writing, subject to California Civil Code Section 1632(b)(3):
“California and local laws limit the amount your rent can be increased. See California Civil Code section 1947.12 and Chapter 8, Article 10 of the Inglewood Municipal Code for more information. The Inglewood Municipal Code also provides that after an existing tenant has continuously and lawfully occupied certain residential real property for 12 months or more, a landlord must provide a statement of just cause in any notice to terminate a tenancy. See Chapter 8, Article 9 of the Inglewood Municipal Code for more information.”
“This property is NOT subject to the rent limits imposed by Inglewood Municipal Code Chapter 8, Article 10, Section 8-127, and is NOT subject to the rent limits imposed by Section 1947.12 of the California Civil Code. Furthermore, this property is NOT subject to the just-cause requirements of Inglewood Municipal Code Chapter 8, Article 9, Section 8-121, and is NOT subject to the just-cause requirements of Section 1946.2 of the California Civil Code.
