I am in favor of permanent rent control in Culver City because the COVID-19 pandemic has already made it difficult to make ends meet and I have a landlord that always increases the rent by the highest percent he can (currently 3%). Not only does the landlord increase the rent whenever he can, but he doesn't repair the apartment building. There is black mold in my apartment and it's causing the wood to be weak and damaged in some parts of the wall. There should be a measure that prevents landlords from increasing the rent, unless all aspects of the apartment building are in good condition. The head of my household has a disability and there should be a measure that protects disabled people in Culver City against rent increases that are too high for them to pay.
