Bellflower landlords plan to clean up the blight

Aug 13, 2008 - 2:37 pm | By

There is an exciting and innovative plan afoot in the Southern California city of Bellflower.  Property owners and landlords are getting together to try to rid their town of a blighted stretch on Eucalyptus Avenue.  A wave in crime and police activity inspired the property owners to get together and form an association to raise tax money to fund the improvements.  The improvements will cost approximately 1.9 Million, and the City of Bellflower is expected to chip in an additional $400,000 in city works.

Tenant Screening
According to the article in the Long Beach Press Telegram “The proposal is considering enforcing a tenant screening process to weed out potential troublesome tenants.”  It’s unknown at this time whether the proposed budget will provide a fund to help property managers screen their tenants.

We hope that the City of Bellflower will closely examine the issue before mandating tenant screening.  It’s unknown if tenants would have to a meet a certain background check threshold (no felonies, FICO score 650) required by the city, or whether property managers would be allowed to make their own decisions. While we wholeheartedly believe is screening all potential tenants, we hope that california property owners rights would be upheld.
