    Angelenos living in rent-controlled apartments may see monthly rent payments climb slightly higher than expected in the coming months.

    In the city of Los Angeles, price hikes for most apartments built before 1978 are regulated by the Rent Stabilization Ordinance, and for the last decade have been capped at 3 percent annually. But in the 12-month period starting in July, landlords will be permitted to raise rents up to 4 percent.

    Letter to the Editor

    So SB 50 may have stalled, but so what? Santa Monica’s single family neighborhoods have already effectively been rezoned as commercial/industrial.

    I have friends who own a house on one of Sunset Parks best streets. You would think they could enjoy their hard-earned peace and quiet…

    EXCEPT that the house across from them runs a (city permitted) Airbnb, where the owner lives in a separate ADU in the back of the house and rents out the front house as a short-term rental.
