Last month, we said that there were nearly 40,000 eviction notices from February to July 2023 filed in the City of LA. We have received updated data from the Los Angeles Housing Department (LAHD) through the month of August 2023 and the data reveals that from February to August 2023, LAHD has received a total of 50,000 eviction notices. 5,575 notices were filed for the month of August and 4,748 are part of updated numbers for February to July from eviction notices received via mail.
The table above shows the top 20 Zip Codes with the highest number of eviction notices filed with the City from February to August 2023.
Units located within 90028 (Hollywood area) had the highest number of eviction notices filed with 3,585 followed by 90036 (Fairfax area) with 2,458.
The total amount of rent owed due to Non-Payment of Rent is $186,491,100.99.
The Just Cause Ordinance (JCO) contains a provision where a landlord can evict a tenant only if the amount due exceeds one month of fair market rent for the Los Angeles metro area.
6,062 eviction notices were filed where the amount of rent owed is below the Fair Market Rent (FMR) Limit.
When served with an eviction, tenants are given a deadline to either pay rent owed or move out ("pay or quit") or to fix an issue or move out ("perform or quit"). Other notices will only give a deadline to move out (such as 30-day notices).
