Reduce homelessness. Help renters.

Take action with us.
What is this measure?

The mansion tax provides renters with legal aid, financial support, and protection from unlawful rent hikes.

You won't pay

No renter will pay the mansion tax but many will benefit from more affordable housing and help paying rent.

Protects Renters

Protects renters from illegal harassment and rent hikes.

Provides Cash Assistance

Provides emergency funding to tenants at risk of becoming homeless.

Reduce Homelessness

Drafted by homelessness and housing experts who know what works—not politicians.

Who supports it?

We are homelessness and housing experts — not politicians.

United to House LA was drafted by renters’ rights groups, homeless service providers, affordable housing nonprofits, and labor unions.

The measure was put on the ballot by thousands of renters and homeowners who agree that LA needs to take real and immediate action to reduce homelessness and protect seniors.

How does it work?

Our measure would tax real estate that sells for more than $5 million in LA City.

  • The mansion tax would generate funding to reduce homelessness and protect low-income seniors, creating a one-time tax for millionaires, billionaires, and corporations that only kicks in when they sell properties in LA for more than $5 million.
  • It would immediately provide housing for people living on the streets, send emergency assistance to low-income seniors in danger of becoming homeless, and provide legal aid to renters.
  • The measure would be implemented with the strongest oversight in LA’s history.
