Take Action Now to Stop Your Rent From Skyrocketing!

Repost of a CES email. Link goes to LA Times story.

Take Action Now to Stop Your Rent From Skyrocketing!

Contact Your City Council Member to Urge Them to

Oppose Council Member Parks' Earthquake Proposal

Which Will Raise Your Rent and Might Displace You!

LA City Council Member Bernard Parks' motion is a direct attack on low income and working renters in this city.

Parks wants tenants to bear the full burden of any earthquake retrofitting costs, while giving landlords a complete free pass and providing them significant rent increases by allowing them to by-pass rent control laws.

Under the guise of saying he wants to provide earthquake safety, Parks action will shake up the lives of tenants with a massive economic earthquake.

Other Council Members, and even the Apartment Association, are seeking state bonds funds to pay for the retrofitting in an effort to avoid economic calamity to both tenants and landlords.

Yet, Parks states he wants a simpler solution. And that simpler solution is sucking more money out of the pockets of those who can least afford to pay.

Parks also appears to be confused about the rent control law. He states that he wants to allow landlords to recover the full costs of the retrofitting, not just 50%. But, the rent control currently allows that for this type of work, but there are protections to tenants built in to cap the rent increases and to provide for temporary or permanent relocation benefits.

What it appears that Parks really wants to do is to eliminate those tenants protections by getting rid of the rent increase cap and relocation benefits.

With over 60% residents tenants, Los Angeles is a city of renters. Unfortunately, over 50% of renters are paying unaffordable rents. They can't afford to pay more. But, Bernard Parks wants them to.

Tell the LA City Council to Oppose Bernard Parks Rent Increase Proposal.

Help Make This Outrageous Proposal Dead on Delivery to the City Council.
