RentSpree waives application fees for victims of the Southern California fires.
Los Angeles, Calif. — At the time of publishing, there are seven severe wildfires impacting the Southern California region. At least three have resulted in mandatory evacuations of an entire area. The severity and intensity of the blazes are forcing many people to make hard decisions as lives and real property is threatened with imminent danger. That this is occurring weeks before the holiday season is both harrowing and unprecedented.
In a recent article published by L.A. Times, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck discusses the ongoing Creek Fire: “We’re going to be hard pressed to meet all the resources required throughout the city and the county of Los Angeles due to this weather event, and if you stay in your homes, you cause our resources to be diverted to take care of you.”*
The severity and extreme nature of the inferno recalls similar stories and images from the Sonoma County Fires less than a season ago.
RentSpree wishes to offer assistance to those looking to lease housing in the midst of the ongoing disasters for reasons due to forced evacuation and/or property damage and repairs. Anyone affected by the recent fires may submit an application and background check through our service to apply for rental housing and receive a full refund.
“We want to do whatever we can to assist those impacted by the fires ,” says Michael Lucarelli, COO of RentSpree. “Procuring shelter is crucial for many who were displaced to feel safe again and to return to a sense of normalcy.”
For any lessor who wishes to waive the fee for clients who are victims of the fires, please process applications via https://www.rentspree.com and have clients call 323-515-7757 or email [email protected] for a full refund after submission.
