Rent Control-No Pros, Only Cons

Another city in Los Angeles County is aiming to put rent control ordinances into effect and I wonder what is going through the minds of people to even consider them.  When an owner cannot rent his property for an amount that the market will bear, he may just be hesitant to improve his property or even simply maintain his property.  Therefore, before you know it, the area will become rundown and not a good place to live.  If the owner decides to sell the property, the price he will be able to get will be less than before rent control.  Rent control is theft, pure and simple.
