Rent Review: Residential Rent Stabilization

Rent Review is now overseen by the City's Housing Division. Contact the Housing Division for more information. 

The City provides relief to residential tenants by:

  • Stabilizing rent increases for certain tenants
  • Encouraging rehabilitation of rental units whenever vacancies occur
  • Promoting investment in new residential rental property in the City by providing gradual elimination of rent increase controls
  • Assuring landlords of a fair return on their property and rental income sufficient to cover the costs of operation

For details as to the Residential Rent Stabilization services provided by the City, please review the City Attorney FAQ, the Residential Rent Stabilization Ordinance FAQ, or the Residential Rent Stabilization Ordinance.
