Southern California property manager R.W. Selby & Co. will pay $450,000 in refunds to apartment tenants who lost their security deposits because of improper charges by the company, according to a court-approved settlement announced by state Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer. The attorney general's office is not sure how many tenants are affected by the agreement, because it has yet to scrutinize Selby's books to determine who should receive the refunds, said Sandra Michioku, a spokeswoman for Lockyer.

The owner of a large Laguna Niguel apartment complex worked Monday to shore up 48 units that had been evacuated because of landslide fears. Residents were ordered to leave their homes in the 178-unit Laguna Summit Apartments, which overlook Crown Valley Parkway, after the unstable land was discovered last week, said Solveig Darner, Laguna Niguel's community liaison. Darner said she was unaware of previous problems at the apartments. Residents of 16 units left voluntarily.

The Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Board has recommended a second six-month delay in issuance of a demolition permit for a historic Westwood apartment so the building can be moved to another site and used as senior-citizen housing. R.W. Selby and Co. Inc. said in July that it would tear down its 54-year-old El Greco apartment building and replace it with a 65-unit complex. But the Los Angeles City Council granted a six-month stay of demolition for the Spanish Mediterranean-style building.
