Download the Rent Adjustment Commission Meeting Agenda 10/1/20

The Rent Adjustment Commission (RAC) is responsible for adopting policies, rules and regulations to carry out the mandates of the Rent Stabilization Ordinance, the City’s law for rent stabilization. They also conduct studies, investigations and hearings to gather information to administer and enforce the Ordinance.

The Commission adopted Regulations and “Working Rules” to provide a standard set of procedures to provide consistency, transparency and guidance in conducting official business. The Commission also adopted the “Appeals Board Rules and Guidelines” for use in hearing appeals scheduled by HCIDLA.

RAC also serves as the Appeals Board (AB) for appeals of General Manager’s determinations.

Meet Our Commissioners

The RAC Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. The current RAC Commissioners are:

  • Carole Brogdon, Chairperson
  • Jane Paul, Vice Chairperson
  • Leonora Gershman Pitts, Commissioner
  • Paula Leftwich, Commissioner
  • Dash Stolarz, Commissioner
  • Hovig Kharmandalian, Commissioner
  • Vacant, Commissioner

Get involved and learn more:

The public is invited to the Commission’s biweekly meetings, usually held on the first and third Thursdays of each month at 12:00 p.m. in the Hearing Room (on the Lobby Level) of the HCIDLA office at 1200 W. 7th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90017. While the Commission does not handle individual landlord and tenant complaints, the Commission makes every effort to give the public an opportunity to comment before the Commission on issues affecting the operation of the Rent Stabilization Ordinance.

Agendas are posted at least 72 hours before each meeting online, on the 1st floor bulletin board at City Hall East and on the City Council Chambers bulletin board on the 3rd floor of City Hall. The Commission has a working subcommittee, the Internal Review Committee, and a citizen task force called the Mobile Home Park Task Force (MHPTF).

For more information, please contact Edward Jacobs, RAC Liaison, at (213) 808-8678 or Elias Narvaez, RAC Support Staff, at (213) 808-8838.
