Vintage Gas Station to become Full Service Coffee on Beverly Blvd between Koreatown and East Hollywood

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017 at 3:05pm. 42 Views, 0 Comments.

I for one am generally pro gentrification but I can definitely see how it can offend and change a neighborhood for the worse.  This type of development is needed more in our area (East of Larchmont & South/West of the 101 freeway - Koreatown to the South, Larchmont Village-Hancock Park to the West, East Hollywood to the North, Silverlake-Los Feliz-Echo park to the East)

 

Conscientious, retains character and spirit of the neighborhood, independent company versus large chain or franchise.

What You Need to Know about Tenant Buyouts in Los Angeles

Thursday, February 16th, 2017 at 3:32pm. 1402 Views, 0 Comments.

The Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO) has brought about a lot of changes for 2017. Among the most important of these are the Tenant Buyout Notification Program, or "Cash for Keys". Many of us have probably heard of, if not experienced firsthand, a landlord looking to strike a deal with a tenant to get them to move out of their unit. This tends to happen a lot in developing neighborhoods, where someone is looking to renovate an entire building and reopen at a higher pricing tier.

As this trend has grown, the city has taken notice. Through the Cash for Keys program, tenants in RSO covered housing will be better protected as tenant buyouts become more regulated and streamlined.

 

Knowledge is Power

 

One of the main ideas behind RSO changes for 2017…

How New Apartments and Condos Affect Rents in Los Angeles

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 at 2:49pm. 721 Views, 0 Comments.

Los Angeles is a very big, mixed up, beautiful mess of a city. Itís got bits that are clean and pretty, others that have more grit with hidden drinking and dining gems hiding behind nondescript storefronts and in back alleys. There are two things nearly all of LA has in common: low vacancy and high rents.


Rental site, Zumper, shows most of West LA from Playa Del Rey to Brentwood sitting at average 1-bedroom rents of over $1,800, with a number of hotspots over $2,400, and with Santa Monica alone able to claim an average of over $3,000 as if trying to compete with San Francisco prices.


While most Angelenos feel the increases on their finances, eyes turn to the battalion of construction cranes that dot the skyline. Before long, those cranes get replaced by…

5 Tips for Landlords Who Have Tenants With Nuisance Pets

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016 at 3:10pm. 431 Views, 0 Comments.

I recently visited the Los Angeles City East Valley Animal Shelter and learned quite a bit about Pets in Rental Housing for Landlords. Furry friends in a rental can be an area of tension between tenants and landlords, but it doesn’t have to be! As a landlord, you can quickly fill vacancies, gain a little extra income from pet fees, and tenant who own pets tend to stay longer in the same rental (an average of 18 months in LA). Alongside the pros, you may run into some cons. Under the unfortunate circumstances of your tenants having nuisance pets, here are some tips for taking care of the issues:   

  • Act quickly! A landlord who waits too long to take action may forfeit their right to object.
  • Refer to the lease agreement your tenant…
