Landlord Registration Online Application lock

On September 29,2020 the City of Culver City amended the Culver City Municipal Code (CCMC) Chapter 15.09 to add permanent residential rent control and tenant protections programs. CCMC Section 15.09.230 establishes a residential rental unit registration requirement as well as provisions for a fee for the registration of rental units intended to recover the City’s reasonable costs associated with the administration and enforcement for the City’s residential rent control and tenant protections programs. At its May 24,2021 meeting, the City Council approved an annual residential rental unit registration fee of $167 per residential unit, as well as fees for late payment, failure to register, and change in rental property ownership.

Landlords must register their residential rental units and pay the rental registration fees by July 31st each year.

City of Culver City - Landlord Registration Application

What you need to know to get started:

1. Every Landlord of a rental unit must submit the information required to obtain a Rent Registration certificate. 

2. The Rent Control Ordinance does not apply to structures that are used solely for commercial purposes and are not used as 
places of human habilitation. However, the Ordinance does apply to joint living and working quarters. 

3. All Landlords must post the Rent Control Ordinance Notice in a conspicuous location in the common area, 
at the entry or entries to the building or units, or other similar location or locations as necessary to provide tenants 
a reasonable opportunity to view the notice, at all properties where a Rent Registration Certificate is required.

4. If a Landlord is in violation of the ordinance, he or she may be subject to various penalties, including administrative 
fines up to $1,000 for each violation (each day a violation exists constitutes a separate violation). 

If you need any assistance with the application process, please call 310-594-7847
