HOUSING RIGHTS AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH

SO MUCH MORE THAN LAWYERS

In addition to direct legal representation, we support tenant rights across the entire spectrum of community needs including:

  • General housing advice

  • Dealing with administrative agencies such as local housing departments (e.g. HCID), Department of Building and Safety, and Department of Environmental Services (e.g., health department)

  • Coordinating tenants for collective action at properties

  • Working with government agencies and court-appointed receivers to repair dilapidated properties and eliminate substandard housing

  • Supporting tenants with Los Angeles’ Rent Escrow Account Program (REAP)

  • Coordinating with constituent offices of elected representatives regarding individual tenant issues or problems

  • Attending and organizing protests and vigils at strategic locations whether city council meetings or the homes of landlords

 

OUTREACH IN OUR COMMUNITY

 

You can always find us in various resource fairs, schools and other events throughout the Los Angeles County.

In 2018, BASTA became a proud partner with Los Angeles Public Library to provide tenant rights advice and assistance in conjunction with the New Americans Initiative, which is sponsored by the Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti.

We are stationed in various Los Angeles Public Libraries once a month where you can meet one of our volunteer attorneys. We always encourage you to come in to one of our offices but if you cannot make it, the public library is another option.

Most of the public library sessions take place between 4:30pm-6:30pm. Please contact the library directly to schedule an appointment.
