Rent Control (or lack of it) in the Los Angeles Area
A common misconception that is held by people around the world is that the Los Angeles area is controlled by Los Angeles. This is false. As a result, what might be true for areas that ARE controlled by LA may not be true for those areas that are not. For example, there is no rent control for those people who don't live under LA's jurisdiction. Consequently, poor people, especially the elderly, are being forced to vacate their homes.
