Rent increases

Soleil

I am a financial aid student attending UCLA full time and believe me it is tough to save enough money to pay rent every month...not to mention I must also save enough money to pay for food, utilities, books, gasoline, etc. etc BUT on top of trying to save money I must also go to school full time, and work part time which makes it difficult to earn enough when rent is due. In Los Angeles, more specifically Westwood, rent is not cheap. For a two bedroom/two bath apartment prices range from $2300 and up.

Inquilinos Unidos

Inquilinos Unidos (United Tenants) empowers low-income Los Angeles tenants through community organizing, education and advocacy. We also work on legislative efforts, tenant rights training and strategy planning, and class action or taxpayer lawsuits to address the most egregious housing violations.

IU offers Tenant Resource Clinics at its office on Mondays from 4:00 to 6:30 pm, as well as walk-in services on Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. Tenants may also call the IU office and leave a message for call-back assistance.
