Before beginning construction at an occupied rental property, applicants must first meet requirements for tenant habitability.

IMPORTANT. The City of West Hollywood has adopted tenant habitability requirements for construction work at all occupied rental properties.

         
   The following applies to all seismic retrofitting work planned at all rented residential properties in the City of West Hollywood. Tenant Habitability Forms are currently available at the Rent Stabilization Public Counter  
         
Applicants requesting a building permit to seismically retrofit (earthquake retrofit) a residential rental building must first do the following:


1. Fill out and submit the Tenant Habitability Checklist with the request for a building permit.

Tenant Habitability Plan Checklist

 [The Checklist is also available at the Rent Stabilization Public Counters in City Hall]


  • Property has no tenants during construction

If the property will not be occupied by tenants during construction, the applicant should sign and submit the checklist.

 


  • Tenants will be living at the property during construction, Habitability Plan Not Required

If tenants will be living at the property during construction and all responses in Sections 2 and 3 of the Checklist were "no", the applicant signs and returns the agreement to follow standard Construction Conditions, and provides all tenant households on the property with the Notice of Construction detailing the approved work. A copy of this notice must also be posted in a conspicuous place near the entrance to the building.
