RAC 720 - Special Provisions for Seismic Retrofit Work


These Rent Adjustment Commission (RAC) Regulations & Guidelines facilitate completion of the mandatory earthquake hazard reductions requirements for existing wood-frame buildings with soft, weak, or open-front walls and existing non-ductile concrete buildings by modifying the service and notice requirements of Article 2 of  Chapter XV of the Los Angeles Municipal Code, titled the Tenant Habitability Program (THP). Note that these regulations pertain to the construction phase of  Seismic Retrofit Work not the cost recovery phase that may occur after construction is completed.
