LA City Council Rejects 50/50 Split of SCEP Fees
The LA City Council rejected the proposal on Tuesday, October 25th to split the Systematic Code Enforcement Program (SCEP) fees between tenants and landlords. Thank you to those who attended the hearing, wrote e-mails and made phone calls to your elected officials.
Councilmember Richard Alarcon introduced a motion (seconded by Councilmember Ed Reyes) that would have requested that the SCEP fees be shared by the property owner and resident. Currently, rental housing owners are allowed to pass through 100% of the SCEP fee to their residents.
