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
