Renter's Guide to Los Angeles

Los Angeles, known for its beautiful beaches, glamorous people, and miles of freeways, is the largest city in California and the second-largest in the U.S., after New York. It was first established by Spaniard Felipe De Neve in 1781. Since that time, L.A. has become a global center for commerce, art, fashion, sports, and entertainment. It is predominantly Hispanic/Latino and Caucasian, with strong Asian and African American communities within.

Los Angeles is just 120 miles north of San Diego, 270.8 miles from Las Vegas, and 61.3 miles west of San Bernardino, making day trips very possible. If you're thinking of a long weekend in beautiful Northern California, San Francisco is approximately 400 miles away. If you go via Interstate 5, it takes about 6-7 hours. But if you'd rather take the scenic route up the coast along CA Hwy 1, it will take 9-10 hours but the beautiful views and Big Sur will make it worth the while.

L.A. weather is usually wonderful with a dry summer and rainy but relatively mild winter. However, temperatures can soar above 90 degrees from June through October.

Living in Los Angeles

What are the pros of living in L.A., you wonder? Quite simply, it all boils down to this: location, location, location. You are likely only an hour’s drive to the ocean. You rarely have to worry about an event getting rained out. You may run into the cast of NCIS: Los Angeles at your favorite coffee shop!

But once you've got the stars out of your eyes, there are a few negatives to living in LA. Some of the worst traffic in the region, if not the entire US is in and around here. LA County has the largest homeless population in the U.S. It can be hard for newcomers to navigate the city or connect with people.

Things to do in Los Angeles

There's a reason why LA is the entertainment capital of the world. You have amusement parks, sporting events, concerts, parks, beaches, and mountains all within reach. If you're really adventurous (and would like a different view of the city) skydiving Los Angeles is offered by several different schools around the area.

There are also world-class sports teams including rooting for baseball champs the Los Angeles Dodgers, watching the Lakers or the Clippers shoot some hoops. If you're a soccer aficionado, the Los Angeles Galaxy is hot, and hockey team Los Angeles Kings are cool. Oh yes, we'll be getting back our L.A. Rams football team very soon...

Spending a day in L.A. with the kids? Hit the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, or the Los Angeles Zoo. Universal Studios or The Grove are also popular attractions for the family.

Couples can have fun in Los Angeles, too: See a movie at the Cinerama Dome, catch a comedy show at IO West, or hit the nightclubs on Hollywood Blvd. And there are plenty of free things to do in L.A., including the beach!

Tips for Renting in Los Angeles

What rights do tenants have in Los Angeles?

Los Angeles tenants do have the right to a livable habitat, free from peeling paint, rodents, and leaky roofs. They are protected by the Housing and Community Investment and Development Department; L.A. rent control covers more people than any other city in California, and buildings built before 1978 can only have rent increased 5% per year. Evicting a tenant can be a lengthy process, which can require the landlord filing a lawsuit. The California Ellis Act law allows landlords to evict rent controlled tenants if they are taking it off the rental market, which has causes a spike in evictions.
