offices and artist studios. Because California recently lifted restrictions on accessory dwellings (smaller structures on the same piece of land as a main house), “there couldn’t be a better time to do this,” says Cover Technologies CEO Alexis Rivas. Perhaps Cover’s algorithms


can overcome the downsides and false starts that have long plagued prefab. When soldiers returned from World War II, the need for mass construction fueled a prefab craze, but consumers viewed the houses as low-quality and unreliable. Now that L.A.’s housing prices are back to prerecession heights, prospective buyers are looking for any opportunity to save money, and prefab is back in the spotlight once again.

ASK THE RENTAL GIRL


Being a renter or owner in L.A. is hard, but Rental Girl founder Elizabeth McDonald knows how to succeed at both. Have questions? She has answers.


The handyman my landlord hires does shoddy work. Can I demand a better repair person? —Steve, Topanga Bad news: As a renter, you’re stuck with your landlord’s opinion—and his pocketbook. Your only recourse is to move out, unless the repairs pose a hazard, in which case you can file a complaint with HCIDLA.

If I’m charging for classes or dinners that I host in my apartment, do I have to let my landlord know?—Kelley, Culver City All standard rental agreements in L.A. have a clause about not running a business out of


a rental property. This clause originates from the City of Los Angeles, which regulates what we can or cannot do on a property in the way of zoning and land use. If the property is zoned for residential use, then you are restricted to using the rental for living only. Worst- case scenario: The city ends up penalizing the homeowner (your landlord), who then evicts you. Yikes!


I’ve been fixing up my place for


years, but now I’m moving. Is there a way to get my money back?—George, Echo Park Nope—sorry, George. Not only that, but the landlord can demand you return the unit to its original condition or send you the bill if he has to do it himself. Always get written permission before making any improvements or repairs.
