If trash is billed separately per unit and is on the DWP bill then most often the renter pays. Since the landlord doesn't receive a separate bill it would be too unwieldy to wait for you to send them copies every month and then issue you a separate check. ... more

If the remaining tenant is a party to the lease and is specifically named on the lease he would have the same rights as the deceased roommate. If the remaining tenant is not included on the lease documents your attorney should help you determine if he was a guest or if he has established an implied tenancy. Since you're writing from Los Angeles it is particularly important that you consult an attorney as many properties fall under the rent stabilization ordinance.

You may learn more about the rent control laws in the City of Los Angeles here:

Best of luck,

Hi Oldbae,

Usually the addition of mass transportation helps values as long as the noise is not a nuisance to your property. If it is walking distance it will make it more attractive for future buyers who don't want to use other more expensive transportation or is looking to use the expo line to go to work. Holding onto any property for more than 10 years usually will mean appreciation anyway, especially if you bought it recently.

Hopefully this helps!

Hello Tanya,

You didn't reference a property. If you are looking in Downtown Only, I could email you all properties available but I can't post them directly on Trulia.

Don Tepper answered:
You say "the landlord wants the rent and deposit upfront." How much of the rent?

Customs vary, but often it's 1 month's rent and security deposit equal to 1 month's rent in advance. Don't pay any more.

Verify 100% that the person you're dealing with owns the property. Ask to see the person's ID (driver's license or passport). The compare it with the tax records to make sure that the person actually owns the property, and isn't just scamming you. There's a growing problem with that on Craigslist.

Make sure you have a written lease spelling out all the terms and conditions. You might also ask the landlord for the name and contact information for the person who last rented the place, to verify that you're dealing with the owner and that the owner treated the previous tenant fairly.

Hope that helps.

Peter Silvester answered:
First, I would make very sure your place is under rent control.
Don't let someone at the end of a city phone say so.
If so, then call me and I'll have you talk to a real estate attorney. I have one for you.

Mickey answered:
Single family property is exempt from the rent stabilization ordinance. If however, you are receiving rental income from the other buildings that are on the same lot as the single family property then you would have to register both units with the Los Angeles Housing Authority in order to continue collecting the rents from them. ... more

Southern California is very wide spread. Most basic services are available everywhere but they are NOT within walking distance when compare to NYC.

Are you moving to LA for work? Will you have a car? Who will care for your 7yr old (child care or at home)? Do you like the beach or the mountains? The answers to these questions will help you to determine your options.

Orange County is newer and it is more family oriented (Soccer moms atmosphere) The employer base are mainly technology industry , some manufacturing and health care services.

Los Angeles is a very large county. Movie/film, financial, medical research industries Children friendly cites include the West side - Santa Monica, Brentwood, West Hollywood, Marina Del Rey, Huntington Beach, Manhanttan, etc. The East side - Los Feliz, N. Hollywood, Silver Lake, Pasadena. North of LA county - Santa Clarita. NW of LA County - Woodland Hills, Agoura Hills, Sherman Oaks.

I hope the information helps.

Rebecca Chambliss answered:
All good areas, also Manhattan Beach, El Segundo is a little farther, San Pedro you''ll find a lot more rentals in the $2000 and under range. It depends on what you want around you...if you like to go out and be social and want to walk to things, I'd suggest Hermosa. Torrance is pretty spread out, so depends on where in Torrance...but all towns listed are fairly close. ... more
