los angeles eviction for owner occupancy

2 Replies

I have heard that if tenants in a los angeles rent control building are evicted in order for an owner or owner's family members to live in the property, those evicted tenants may have a right to move back into the units if the units are placed back on the rental market with-in 2 years. If this is true, does that tenant re-rental right survive a sale? meaning if the owner who evicted tenants to move into the unit then sells the building, can the new owner rent the units without having the obligation to re-rent the units to the tenants evicted by the prior owner? Any information on this would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

@Ramon Wilson Why not pick up the phone and ask your local housing authority? If you don’t owner occupy, regardless how many times it changes ownership, the protection applies. A 2nd degree cousin of your wife’s cousin in-law does not apply also.
