Los Angeles Landlords Allowed to Pass on SCEP Costs to Tenants in June

Los Angeles landlords are allowed to pass on 1/2 of the registration fees under the Los Angeles Rent Stabilization Ordinance in June 2014. In 2014, the total  cost allowed to be passed on to tenants is $12.25. This one time fee can be paid anytime in June 2014; however, a landlord is required to serve a 30 Day Notice to every unit in order to collect the fee. It is generally easier to collect this fee with rent that is due on the first, which means that 30 Day Notices must be served by May 2, 2014. For example, if a notice is served on May 10, 2014, the tenant would be required to pay the $12.25 on June 9, 2014.

It is important to note that a landlord must serve a copy of the landlord’s Rent Stabilization Registration Certificate to each tenant in order to recover the $12.25. Marinaccio Law is providing a blank thirty day notice for Los Angeles landlords and property managers to fill out and serve to their tenants to collect the $12.25 fee.
