Although investors in Los Angeles residential real estate, we are based overseas. So we needed a local management team that would provide a reliable and comprehensive service. Preferably a family-led operation which would also ensure continuity with the senior management. A Los Angeles realtor friend recommended Lotus. He has been proved absolutely right.

What is the policy for rent increases, and how are they implemented?
The policy for rent increases will vary depending on the landlord and the terms outlined in the lease agreement. Some landlords may choose to increase rent on an annual basis, while others may only raise rent every few years. In most cases, landlords are required to give tenants written notice of the rent increase at least 30 days before the effective date. The notice should include the amount of the increase and the date it will take effect.
What happens if a tenant violates the lease agreement?
In consultation with our Marina Del Rey team, you, as the landlord, can issue a written warning to the tenant. This is done to correct the tenant’s actions, but if the violations continue, we can assist you to file for an eviction.
What is the process for renewing a lease or ending a tenancy?
The process for renewing a lease or ending a tenancy will depend on the terms outlined in the original lease agreement. In most cases, tenants must provide written notice to the landlord a certain number of days before the end of the lease term if they wish to renew the lease. If the tenant does not wish to renew, the tenancy will end on the date specified in the lease agreement.
