Department of Consumer and Business Affairs to Enforce Rent Stabilization Ordinance in Unincorporated Los Angeles County
By Sentinel News Service
Published December 20, 2018

A temporary rent stabilization ordinance is now in effect for eligible rental units in the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. The ordinance, which is valid for 180 days, limits residential rent increases to no more than three percent within a 12-month period and limits the reasons a tenant can be evicted.

The County of Los Angeles Department of Consumer and Business Affairs (DCBA) enforces the new ordinance. DCBA is working to educate renters and landlords about the County’s new temporary ordinance, which was implemented by the County’s Board of Supervisors in November last month.

For more information about L.A. County’s new temporary rent stabilization ordinance, contact DCBA’s new Rent Stabilization program:

To find out if a property is in unincorporated Los Angeles County, visit the Los Angeles County Register-Recorder/County Clerk website at and select “District Map Look Up By Address.”


Single-family homes, condominiums, and some apartments are not considered eligible rental units.

The Board of Supervisors can extend the temporary rent stabilization ordinance, as necessary, or vote to replace it with a permanent ordinance.

Since 1976, the County of Los Angeles Department of Consumer and Business Affairs (DCBA) has served consumers, businesses, and communities through education, advocacy, and complaint resolution. We work every day to educate consumers and small business owners about their rights and responsibilities, mediate disputes, investigate consumer fraud complaints, and enforce Los Angeles County’s minimum wage ordinance.
