Resolution on Earthquake Landlord/Tenant Retrofit Costs

The Los Feliz Neighborhood Council (LFNC), representing over 36,000 resident stakeholders, was engaged by our constituents and asked to study Ordinance No. 183893 which amends Divisions 93 and 95 of Article I of Chapter IX of the Los Angeles Municipal Code, establishes mandatory standards for earthquake hazard reduction in existing wood‐frame buildings with soft, weak, or open‐front walls and existing non‐ductile concrete buildings, and amends Sections 152.02, 152.04, 152.05 and 152.08 of Article 2 of Chapter XV of the Los Angeles Municipal Code to grant authority to the Rent Adjustment Commission to modify Tenant Habitability Program requirements for purposes of implementing seismic retrofit mandates. Of most concern is the development of a comprehensive funding plan for the enactment of Ordinance No. 183893 that protects both renters and small/independent property owners.
