Holding Landlords Accountable and Supporting Tenants
Tenants rights is an extremely important issue - over 60% of Los Angelenos are renters. I will do everything within my power to hold landlords who are violating the law accountable, particularly as renters are struggling to make ends meet during the pandemic. I will also support efforts to create stronger health and building code enforcement so that landlords who violate or neglect the law are held accountable.
Supporting Los Angeles tenants requires more than just holding landlords accountable. As City Attorney, I will work with the City Council to provide support for LA tenants who are facing eviction or struggling to pay rent. I will also work to establish a more accessible and transparent reporting system for tenants to use, so that the city can do a better job enforcing the law.
