More Drama At 'The Hills' House – LA Building & Safety Office Investigating Guest House!
Could there be more trouble at hand for “The Hills” star Lauren Conrad surrounding her Hollywood home, which is featured prominently as a shooting location for the hit MTV show?
Access has learned that the City of Los Angeles’ Department of Building and Safety is investigating whether or not there is an illegal residence on Conrad’s property.
On “The Hills,” Audrina Patridge lives in the back guest house. However, according to the Multiple Listing Service, the house is not permitted for a second dwelling. It’s permitted for only one dwelling, which has seven rooms total – three bedrooms and one full bath.
The details for Second Unit permits are listed in Appendix VI, Section VI F of the Department of Building and Safety’s Building Permit and Clearance Handbook. The property is zoned as LAR1, which means a Single Family residence with one dwelling. For a second dwelling to be considered, the unit must meet 9 standards, listed here on pages 144 and 145.
The investigation by the city could explain blog reports last week of a moving truck sighted out front.
MTV had no comment about this investigation and Lauren’s spokesperson has not replied.
Additionally, a source tells Access that on Sunday morning at around 1 AM, several cars filled with girls and guys parked outside of Lauren’s house, yelled profanities, honked their horns, and then drove off. They returned again at 1:30, and again at 1:45, the source (who witnessed & heard the incident) says.
