The City of Beverly Hills Community Preservation enforces the City's provisions regulating residential multi-family rent stabilization of apartment units, only. The Rent Stabilization Ordinance does not apply to condominium units, single-family homes, commercial spaces, or units permitted after 1955 per Costa Hawkins. If you are not a tenant of an apartment unit, please refer to the L.A. County Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) Landlord Handbook link and contact information at the bottom of this page for additional information.
The City of Beverly Hills’ Rent stabilization requirements apply to all multi-family housing of two or more units, except the following:
- Hotels, motels, inns and boarding houses unless they have been rented for more than 30 days.
- Rental housing built with a certificate of occupancy issued after February 1, 1995
- Rental housing built before 1978 and initially occupied by the current tenant for a rent of $600/month or less. This is referred to as “Chapter 5” rental housing and a different set of regulations applies to this housing. Please note that Beverly Hills Municipal Code Title 4 - Chapter 5 units are subject to the registration requirement.
