Hello everyone do any of you know of a good tenant attorney. My buddy is getting his rent raised by 18.5 % from year one to year 2 .
And they are asking that he signs a new lease. I have no idea if this is legal for landlords to do in a 60 unit property in los angeles county.
If it's a newer building, then rent control won't apply. You can contact these people first before spending the money on a lawyer: https://dcba.lacounty.gov/rent...
I would check the local ordinances to make sure there isn't a rent freeze. There is one in the City of Los Angeles.
