On Tuesday, March 5, 2019 City Council conducted a first reading of and introduced “AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF BEVERLY HILLS AMENDING ARTICLE 5 OF CHAPTER 2 OF THE BEVERLY HILLS MUNICIPAL CODE TO ESTABLISH THE RENT STABILIZATION COMMISION”.
The city will consider adopting the ordinance at the April 2, 2019 meeting. Click here to view the materials prepared by staff for the March 5 City Council Meeting.
Amendments to the Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO), adopted by the Beverly Hills City Council in January 2017, require housing providers to register eligible rental units with the City of Beverly Hills (the City). Some information, like ownership details and number of units, is required from all registrants. In most cases, information like current rent amount is also required.
A notice was sent to housing providers on January 2, 2019. Housing providers have 30 days from receipt of the mailed notice to register. City RSO staff must confirm receipt of the notice before you can register. Receipt is confirmed when staff receives the certified mail return certificate or when you contact City RSO staff at 310-285-1031.
Failure to register may include substantial penalties, including but not limited to fines of up to $500.00 per unit.
Housing providers register online in three basic steps:
- Visit http://bhrent.beverlyhills.org
