What is the proposed Right to Lease Ordinance?
The proposed Right to Lease Ordinance will require Glendale landlords to offer lease agreements to all tenants. This will be applicable to all residential units in apartment buildings of five units or more. The ordinance requires an initial 1 year lease term offering, with a tenant option to renew for a second year, followed by annual 1-year lease renewal offers thereafter. The ordinance is intended to provide some assurance of stability under the terms of a written lease so as to minimize displacement and harm to tenants in a volatile rental housing market.
