Tuesday the 28th of November, the Glendale City Council will consider a proposed moratorium on evictions due to substantial renovations. This is a cause of great concern and not just because of bad timing with the substantial lack of housing inventory for both rental and for-sale units, but because it may impose the moratorium on duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes, and single-family homes – if your client owns more than one and is renting them out.

Why this Moratorium Will Not Work
The proposed moratorium on evictions due to substantial renovations risks unintended backlash from the market, prospective tenants, and housing providers. It risks leading to continued substandard housing conditions – the very conditions that the City seeks to improve – and also may lead to the risk of rental housing units coming off the market entirely.
