After years of debate, the Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, passed an ordinance giving renters new protections from landlords who harass them. The ordinance lists a number of actions that could constitute harassment, including: Reducing the services outlined in a tenant’s lease (for example, taking away a parking space) Failing to perform necessary repairs Unlawfully entering a tenant’s unit Threatening physical harm Refusing to accept payment of rent Asking tenants to disclose their immigration status or threatening to report them to authorities Other repeated acts that “substantially interfere with or disturb the comfort, repose, peace or quiet of a tenant” Tenants will be able to sue landlords for violating any of the provisions in the ordinance.
