ANNUAL REGISTRATION FEES OF $194 PER UNIT WERE DUE TUESDAY, JULY 1, 2014. 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 September 1st, 2014 . 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.

At its meeting on Monday, May 12, 2014, the Rent Stabilization Board approved Resolution 14-02 establishing an unchanged 2014-2015 annual registration fee of $194 per unit and approving guidelines for the 2014-2015 fiscal year operating budget.  Please contact the Rent Stabilization Board at 510-981-7368 (981-RENT) for more information.
