The Pasadena Rent Stabilization Department Hosts the March Property Management and Landlord Workshop "Beyond the Basics"

PASADENA, Calif. – March 1, 2024 – The City of Pasadena Rental Stabilization Department is preparing for its educational workshop designed for landlords and property managers. The "Beyond the Basics" workshop is scheduled to take place via Zoom on Tuesday, March 19, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., and registration is highly encouraged.

Facilitated by Stephanie Chandler, Esq. of the Housing Rights Center, the workshop provides valuable insights from her extensive legal experience guiding landlords and tenants to comply with Pasadena’s rent control regulations.

This marks the second comprehensive workshop, and in line with any new law, the Rent Stabilization Department aims to provide clarification and education to landlords, property managers, and tenants. Attendees of the Beyond the Basics workshop can expect interesting discussions covering topics including the recently established petition process, rent rollback, legal rent increases, just cause for evictions, clarification on Section 8 and its application to Pasadena Rent Control Laws, and relocation. While these workshops do not substitute professional legal counsel for specific situations, they offer valuable free insights from an attorney about compliance with the measure and general experiences. Spanish language interpretation will be available for this online workshop. In addition to the topics covered, Rent Stabilization Department Interim Executive Director Phillip Leclair will introduce landlords and property managers to the new City department and provide an overview of efforts underway to launch new services.
