STOPPING PREDATORY LANDLORDS AND UNSAFE VEHICLE DWELLING
Posted by Councilmember Englander on December 01, 2017 at 4:00 PM
This week, I submitted a motion to eliminate the predatory practice of illegally renting out vehicles for the sole intent of utilizing the vehicle as a dwelling on Los Angeles city streets and public spaces. The motion asks the City Attorney and the Los Angeles Police Department to report back on the appropriate amendments to the Los Angeles Municipal Code that will enable the City of Los Angeles to prohibit this practice.
There are a growing number of vehicles being rented out for dwelling purposes on City streets throughout Los Angeles communities. “Landlords” are purchasing a variety of different vehicles such as motorhomes, panel trucks, vans, and sedans from Police impound lots, towing them back onto City streets, and renting them out on a nightly or monthly basis. Vehicles often do not have running water, a reliable source of power, and may lack a source for heating or cooling.
