Los Angeles County Launches Online Rent Registry on October 1, 2021

HomeRent Relief Program – Los Angeles County Launches Online Rent Registry on October 1, 2021

On October 1, 2021, Los Angeles County launched their online Rent Registration System. Rental housing providers with rental units in the County’s unincorporated areas must register their rental units with the County. The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors extended the waiver for payment of the Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO) annual registration fee through June 30, 2022, for rental housing providers who register in the County’s Rental Registry System on or before January 1, 2022.
The annual rental registration fee is $90 per unit for rental units subject to both the County’s Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO) and Just-Cause provisions (“Fully Covered Units”) and $30 per unit for rental units subject to the County’s Just-Cause provisions but exempt from the County’s RSO (“Just-Cause Only Units”) in the County’s unincorporated areas.
The registry will add enhanced functions in the upcoming months for property owners and tenants, including the ability to submit applications for rent adjustments, as well as property owner requests for capital improvement and primary renovation pass-throughs, and notifications of termination of tenancy directly to DCBA.

Property owners can register their rental properties at https://www.rentregistry.dcba.lacounty.gov/#/homepage
