Rent Leveling and Stabilization

The office staff assists landlords and tenants in understating the impact the Municipal Rent Control Ordinance, Chapter 155, may have on their properties and apartments. Technical assistance is provided on a wide variety of rental issues which cover such matters as: which apartments are subject to local rent control laws; what is the legal base rent; what rent increases the law permits; annual cost of living adjustments; tax surcharges; water/sewer surcharges; capital improvement surcharges; hardship increases; vacancy decontrol and annual registration requirements. Files on all residential properties are maintained for public inspection if owners and/or tenants have questions regarding a particular property.

RENT LEVELING BOARD

In conjunction with this office, a 9 person citizen board convenes bi-monthly to review appeals, uphold City ordinances, and pass regulations. Find out more.
