Yes, I do believe this property is under rent control.

This property recently sold on 11/4/13. I would be happy to email you some similar properties in the area that are on the market, just send me over your email address to JamieTian@RodeoRE.com.

He's unaware because he doesn't know LA rent stabilization law.

This property has never been a rental, so I am unaware of any rent control rules that might apply in the area. Thanks.

Ok...so it is in the City of Los Angeles...then it is covered under the LA RSO. That is your answer!

The correct answer is what Jamie Tian said, yes it is subject to rent control. Harbor City is part of the City of Los Angeles which has rent control. The subject property is a triplex built in 1960 which makes it subject to the LA rent stabilization ordinance.

25521 Frampton Ave. Harbor City, CA 90710 (Harbor City) was built in 1960.

However, I believe that Harbor City is in the County of Los Angeles, not the City of Los Angeles, which is not covered under rent control nor has a rent control ordinance.

If it was in the City of Los Angeles, and had a Certificate of Occupancy prior to October 1, 1978, was 2 or more units on a property, then it would be covered under the Los Angeles Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO).

One of the two best ways to find out if it is not under rent control is to:

1. Contact the Los Angeles Housing Department at 1-866-557-RENT

http://lahd.lacity.org/lahdinternet/RentStabilization/tabid/…

and/or

2. Find out who responds to the property if you call the police.

If LAPD responds, then it is in the City of Los Angeles and covered under the RSO.

If the Sheriff Department responds, then it is in the County of Los Angeles, and not covered under the RSO.

I hope this answers your questions.

All the best,

Kat
