  NEWS & INFORMATION

ANNUAL REGISTRATION FEES OF $270 PER UNIT WERE DUE MONDAY, JULY 3, 2017. The Rent Stabilization Ordinance requires that payments not received in the Rent Board Office or postmarked by the due date be assessed a 100% penalty. Rental units must be properly registered in order to take rent increases and/or evict tenants. Most property owners may be eligible for a waiver of part or all of the penalty fees if their account is fully paid on or before August 30, 2017. If you have any questions about the registration status of your property, please contact the Rent Board at (510) 981-7368 and ask for our Registration Unit. 

The Rent Board now has a video web page! Check out our new video on Security Deposits, as well as Eviction Protections and our video guide on the basics of rent control.
