New Los Angeles Ordinance Requires Banks and Lenders To Repair Vacant Residential Property


In another blow to residential lenders, the city of Los Angeles has passed an ordinance that will require the person that owns or is in control of certain residential real property to maintain the property in a safe and sanitary condition and in good repair. While one might logically expect that this ordinance would only apply to financial institutions once they have foreclosed upon the property or taken it back via a deed in lieu of foreclosure, the ordinance appears to go farther than that, requiring the financial institution to take responsibility for the condition of the property once a notice of default has been filed.
