|Lawsuit Filed to Block Landlord Illegal Rent
Only Online Policy
On March 6, 2012, the Coalition for Economic Survival (CES) organized a news conference to announce that a lawsuit was filed the day before by Bet Tzedek Legal Services in Los Angeles County Superior Court against Jones and Jones Property Management Company on behalf of tenants who are illegally being required to pay their rent only online.
CES charges that rent online only policy is nothing more than a scheme to target the long-term, low-rent tenants for eviction to obtain higher rents.
