L.A. County supervisors impose temporary rent control for some mobile homes
Rent hikes greater than 3 percent will be banned temporarily at mobile home parks in unincorporated Los Angeles County starting in early October, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors decided.
The county board voted 3-1 on Tuesday, Sept. 4, to approve on a second reading a six-month moratorium on rent hikes for mobile home spaces, a move designed to protect those residents from preemptive rent hikes while permanent rent control for such housing is under consideration. The measure becomes effective in 30 days.
The new ordinance affects an estimated 8,500 mobile home tenants, who typically own their home but lease the space on which it sits.
