The Consumer Protection Division of the Santa Monica City Attorney’s Office and the City’s Rent Control Agency will host a free forum on landlord/tenant rights and responsibilities.
The event will be held Dec. 3, 2014, from 9 am to 12 pm at the Thelma Terry Center in Virginia Avenue Park, located at 2200 Virginia Avenue in Santa Monica.
The forum is part of the City’s ongoing effort to increase public awareness of how local and state laws impact landlords and tenants.
Along with a general overview of the Rent Control Law, issues to be discussed include:
— When can a landlord enter a tenant’s unit – and what can they do after they enter?
— What requirements may a landlord place on how rent is paid?
— What actions are prohibited by Santa Monica’s Tenant Harassment Law?
— When are temporary or permanent relocation benefits required?
All Santa Monica tenants, property owners, property managers, and advocates are invited to attend. A continental breakfast will be served and some parking is available at the park.
