Evictions and “Cash for Keys” Free Workshop

  • 05/04/2018
  • Reporters Desk

In 2017, the city of Los Angeles created a tenant Buyout Notification and Disclosure Program, which is designed to monitor vocabulary vacancies of RSO rental units. The program requires notice to tenants prior to executing a “Cash for Keys” agreement. (Ordinance No. 184673, effective January 25, 2017).

To promote fairness during buyout negotiations and agreements, landlords must inform tenants of their RSO rights before executing a Buyout Agreement.  Landlords must provide tenants a copy of the RSO Disclosure Notice, file a copy with the City of Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), and must inform tenants of their rights, including the right not to accept a “cash for keys” arrangement and the right to rescind such an agreement within 30 days.

Landlords, property managers and tenants are highly encouraged to attend this important workshop.

This workshop will be presented by HCIDLA’s Rent Stabilization Division
