Rent Registry Creating Issues in Santa Ana
Santa Ana's recently rolled out rent registry has created a great deal of problems for property owners - and tenants alike.
The registry requires all rental property owners to submit all the information related to the leases they hold with their residents - as well as the name, phone, e-mail and preferred language of everyone living in a unit - whether they are on the lease or not - and certified by the owner under penalty of perjury.
This overreach has created a great deal of uneasiness among tenants as to why this information is being collected - and among owners as to why all this information is being requested.
AAOC penned an Op Ed on this in the OC Independent this week - an are working to get additional coverage.
On OCTOBER 17TH the Santa Ana City Council will be hearing a presentation by city staff on the registry.
We encourage all property owners an residents to go to city hall and voice your concerns about this policy.
