(A) It is unlawful to let or rent any place, structure, or part thereof, trailer or other conveyance, with the knowledge that it will be used as a permanent residence or temporary residence by any person prohibited from establishing such permanent residence or temporary residence pursuant to this chapter, if such place, structure, or part thereof, trailer or other conveyance, is located within 1,000 feet of any school, designated public school bus stop, day care center, park, playground, or other private or public recreational facility where children regularly congregate unless the landlord or owner can establish that, prior to entry of a lease, he or she used reasonable due diligence and was unable to determine that the tenant is a sexual offender.
(B) A property owner's failure to comply with provisions of this section shall constitute a violation of this section, and subject the property owner to the code enforcement provisions set forth in Chapter 36 of the Hollywood Code of Ordinances, including the provisions that allow the city to seek relief as otherwise provided by law. Each day the property is in violation shall constitute a separate offense.
(C) The provisions of this section shall not be applied to persons residing at a prohibited location on the effective date of this chapter such that it is not the intent of this chapter to impair valid, existing and bona fide contract rights; provided, however, that the provisions of this chapter shall apply upon termination of any leasehold relationship arising from a landlord tenant relationship or the expiration of a lease. When a person who is the subject of this chapter changes residences, this chapter shall fully apply to such persons.
