CITY OF INGLEWOOD’S NEW
Housing Protection Department
WHAT IS HOUSING PROTECTION?
Housing Protection is a department that was created by the Inglewood City Council pursuant
to Assembly Bill 1482 that was established by the State of California in 2019. The department
was enacted to specifically address the concerns of the City of Inglewood’s rental constituency
by monitoring the regulations for rent increases and just cause eviction protections outlined in
Ordinance No. 21-09 (Housing Protection Ordinance).
WHAT IS REGISTRATION?
The Housing Protection Department will implement an online Inglewood Residential Registry
System that will require all Property Owners and Landlords to register their residential
property regardless if it is used as a rental or not.
WHY MUST I REGISTER MY HOME IF IT IS NOT BEING USED AS A RENTAL?
All property owners and landlords are required to register their residential properties to enable
the City to capture and maintain current data on the city’s housing stock.
WHO HAS TO REGISTER?
ALL RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES must be registered through the online Inglewood Residential
Registry System, regardless if it is used as a rental or not. There are a number of property types
that are exempt from paying registration fees; however, the exemption is contingent upon
timely registration. The exempt property types are as follows:
1. Single Family Homes and Condominiums owned by a natural person regardless if it is the
owner’s primary residence or it is being used as a rental property.
2. Owner-occupied duplexes (2 residential units on one parcel) as long as the owner has
established the residency prior to the tenant occupying the other unit, and the residency of
the owner is continuous.
3. Housing that has been issued a certificate of occupancy within 15 years from the current date.
4. Properties/Units whose rents are less than 70% of Fair Market Value.
5. Affordable Housing developments with restricted deeds.
WHEN AM I REQUIRED TO REGISTER MY PROPERTY?
The Program Fiscal Year is from October 1st through September 30th. For the initial year (October
1, 2021), the City Council delayed the registration date to January 7, 2022. The online Inglewood
Residential Registry System will be open to property owners and landlords beginning January 7,
2022 through March 31, 2022. Please note: Registration fees for ALL properties registered from
January 7, 2022 through March 31, 2022, will be waived.
WHY MUST I PAY REGISTRATION FEES?
The fees are imposed on residential properties that are governed by the Housing Protection
Ordinance, which are intended to recover the City’s reasonable costs associated with enforcing
its housing protection regulations as outlined in Chapter 8 (Articles 9 and 10) of the Inglewood
Municipal Code, and related inspection programs. Fees will be waived for all residential
properties successfully registered between January 7, 2022 and March 31, 2022.

connected us with other individuals and families
who share our journey and understand the range
of emotions and challenges accompanying the
disease. We have met some delightful people
who have become friends.”
Today, Rod is focusing on taking the lessons
he has learned since his diagnosis to offer
help to individuals and families impacted
by Alzheimer’s and other dementia. He feels
grateful for the support of his wife Deb for
starting the conversation with him that she was
seeing changes. That conversation, together
with her continued support, have made his
early Alzheimer’s diagnosis easier to manage.
“Isolation is a huge problem in our community,”
he says. “People experience stigma,
so they are afraid to share what’s going on
with them and to get the help they need. I
am fortunate to have the blessing of support
from my family, but others feel so alone.”
To learn more about how to facilitate these
difficult conversations, visit the “Hopeful
Together” campaign website (in English at
alz.org/TimeToTalk or in Spanish at alz.org/
Tiempo). The website offers tools and resources
to help families recognize early warning signs
of Alzheimer’s, tips for facilitating conversations
about cognition, benefits of early
detection and diagnosis, a discussion guide
for use with doctors and health providers and
other disease-related information.
Early detection can have significant benefits,
including eliminating uncertainty, giving
diagnosed individuals a voice in
their future care and providing individuals
and families an opportunity
to find support groups. Early detection is the
first step towards creating a plan of action. •
