Renter's guide to Palmdale, CA

The sunny mountain town of Palmdale, CA welcomes you!

While it may technically be a suburb of LA, you’ll feel like you’re in your own world here, since the San Gabriel Mountains shield it from the LA metro area.

The economy is great too. In fact, WalletHub ranked Palmdale as the 12th most diversified economy in the US in 2015. This is great news, whether you're a millennial just getting started in their career or you're looking for a place to raise a family.

Palmdale is located in Los Angeles County and is about 106 square-miles, roughly the same size as nearby Lancaster – but just 4% as big as the city of Los Angeles.

It's 9 miles from Lancaster, 53 miles from Burbank, and 64 miles from LA.

Tips for renting in Palmdale, CA

The state of California provides some excellent benefits to tenants.

For example, if your landlord fails to make vital repairs, you have a host of options. You can withhold rent, sue, notify state inspectors, or even move out without notice.

You could also do the repairs yourself and deduct the cost from your rent. However, you're restricted to a maximum deduction equal to a single month’s rent, and you can only exercise this option once every 12 months.
