The City of Inglewood has adopted a short-term rent stabilization policy as a response to a housing shortage and rising home costs in the market. The Inglewood City Council voted to pass a temporary ordinance that will cap rent increases at 5%. The ordinance will last 45 days, and in the interim, the City Council will discuss whether to extend the ordinance for a year.

Greg Brown, SVP of government affairs for the National Apartment Association, attributes the new ordinance to a lack of housing supply and “burdensome” construction regulations that create high barriers to entry in the market for new development. “It is not because of new rail lines or an NFL stadium,” says Brown. “Politicians frequently use rent control as a quick fix, but the real solution is more complex and includes streamlining regulations to help ease those barriers to construction.”
