When a property is accepted into the Rent Escrow Account Program (REAP), the Department records a notice on the title of the property to inform any prospective buyers that there may be fees owed associated with REAP. This notice will remain on title until City Council removes the property from REAP (LAMC § 162.08).
To request a copy of the REAP notice recorded on title, please contact the Los Angeles County Registrar Recorders Office.
If you would like to know how much is owed on your property, please submit your demand request form approved by the Department.
If you are waiting to receive the remaining balance from the REAP escrow account, please ensure that the Department has received an original copy of your W-9 form.
