Rental increases are restricted to the annual rental increase allowed by ordinance unless:

  • The unit was approved for a vacancy decontrol
  • The unit is classified as exempt by the rent control ordinance

ALL REGULATED UNITS MUST REGISTER BY APRIL 1  EVERY YEAR!

2015 Allowable Annual Increase:       2.6%

2014 Allowable Annual Increase:       2.5%

Registration Fee:                                       $25 per unit

Late Fee if filed after April 30:              Additional $5 per unit ($30 per unit total)

Unregistered units are subject to receiving summonses and fines.

Registration forms, decontrol forms and other information can be found using the drop down menu at the top of the page.
