Halloween is almost here! Are you enjoying the pumpkin spice everything and getting your costume ready?! Here’s some brief information for you that will be helpful!

Pasadena Landlord Updates

The City of Pasadena recently voted to implement new rules for Pasadena landlords on handling tenants. This applies to Single-Family Homes, Condos, Townhomes and multi-family units. If you are a landlord in Pasadena, here’s what you need to know: 1) landlords in cannot terminate a tenancy without a just-cause; 2) landlords must provide relocation assistance to tenants, whether they are served a 60-day notice to vacate or not; 3) landlords must also hold a tenant’s deposit in an interest-bearing account.

If you are a landlord in unincorporated Pasadena, these rules do not apply, as it is subject to Los Angeles County housing rules instead.

RentSpree: Application to Screen Tenants

If you own a rental property and are looking for ways to screen prospective tenants in a secure fashion, us REALTORS® will use a service called RentSpree. The tenant pays $38 to have their credit report, eviction record and background check pulled. It is a soft pull on the tenant’s credit because they are not pulling their credit to purchase a home or borrow money. This is a sure way to get everything up front about the tenant and feel comfortable with your decision. If you are thinking about renting out your property in the Los Angeles area, I am here to help from start to finish!
