Tenant Management and Occupancy Monitoring

The Occupancy Monitoring Unit is responsible for annual verification of tenant income and rent limits for all properties with a recorded HCIDLA regulatory agreement or covenant. HCIDLA restricts the affordability of certain housing units when the owner received a loan or a land use benefit from the City of Los Angeles. HCID will monitor projects annually for 55 years or the length of the affordability term.
