In a Los Angeles rent control eviction, all the “normal” 3 day notice requirements are applicable. However, there are additional notice requirements under Los Angeles rent control.
When serving a 3 day notice under Los Angeles rent control, the landlord needs to serve on the tenant a written notice setting forth the reasons for the termination with specific facts to permit a determination of the date, place, witnesses and circumstances concerning the reason for the eviction.
These requirements place additional burdens on the landlord and requires the landlord to divulge information that the landlord could use during an actual trial, with the downside of giving the tenant time to come up with defenses to the allegations. Neverthless, Los Angeles rent control laws require that the landlord include this information in the 3 day notice.
