A: Based on the information provided, it seems that the City of Rosemead would follow the Los Angeles County Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO). Here is an analysis:

- Rosemead is located in Los Angeles County and does not have its own rent control laws. Therefore, it would default to the LA County RSO.

- The LA County RSO covers rental units in unincorporated areas of LA County as well as incorporated cities within the county that do not have their own rent control laws (like Rosemead).

- The duplex meets the criteria - it has 2 units, the owner doesn't occupy either unit, and it was built in 1950, so it would be covered as the RSO applies to units constructed before 1995.

- Under the RSO, there are strict limitations on allowable reasons for eviction/termination of tenancy. No-fault evictions like an owner move-in require relocation fees to be paid as well.

So in summary - as a 1950s duplex with a non-occupying landlord located in the city of Rosemead, the LA County RSO and its tenant eviction protections would apply to your situation. Review the specific limitations on terminations with a local tenant lawyer regarding next steps.
