Long Beach is not rent-controlled, so unfortunately a landlord can increase the rent to any amount. If the increase is 10% or more, which your case it is, they have to give you a 60-day written notice.

Thank goodness Long Beach is not rent-controlled. If you understand anything about economics and the history of rent control you know why.

Rent control leads to more run down buildings and creates slumlords out of descent land lords that simply can't afford to maintain buildings with out increasing rents. Building maintenance is not free.

If you think the rental increase is too high or unjust than move.
