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. 1, 2015, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. 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 in Santa Monica 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:
— New developments in local law
— What happens when a new owner takes over
— Repairs and maintenance
— Disability issues and claims of “hoarding”
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.
Registration is required by Nov. 26, 2015. Please register early as space is limited: smconsumer.org or 310-458-8691.
