2020 Registration is now open.
On January 6, packets containing information about registration were mailed to Beverly Hills multifamily property owners. The registration deadline is 30 days from the receipt of the packet. Receipt is confirmed when we receive the green Registered Mail receipt. Registration is mandatory.
You do not need to have received a packet to register. If you registered last year, you can register now. Email email@example.com from the email address associated with your registration account. Include your name and state your desire to register. Beverly Hills staff will open your account for the 2020 Registration cycle.
Once your account is open, visit https://bhrent.beverlyhills.org and login with your credentials from the last registration cycle.
If it's your first time registering, please contact staff at 310-285-1031 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For returning users, or those who already have an account through a change of ownership amendment, registration is extremely easy. The information you already filled out, either from 2019 Registration or an ownership amendment, will be prefilled. Simply review, ensure the information is accurate and current (including rent raises), and submit.
First time users and new owners will be required to fill in all information.
