FY 2018-2019 REGISTRATION INFORMATION 

All rental units covered by the Ordinance should be registered annually by July 1st of each year.  Because July 1st falls on a Sunday this year, all units must be registered by Monday, July 2, 2018.

If registration fees are not paid on time, the penalty is 100%.  If you rent out a unit that was formerly exempt, then you must register the unit within 60 days of date that the unit became covered by the Ordinance. 
  
At its special meeting on May 7, 2018, the Berkeley Rent Stabilization Board adopted Resolution 18-05 setting the Fiscal Year 2018/2019 Annual Registration Fee at $250 per unit effective July 1, 2018 (the fee is due on July 2nd this year). The Board also adopted Resolution 18-06 authorizing, with proper notice, the pass-through of up to $10.00 per month to tenants where the tenancy began prior to January 1, 1999. The Pass-Through may be taken for 12 consecutive months. It cannot begin prior to July 1, 2018, and must terminate no later than December 31, 2019, unless extended by future Board action. The increase shall not result in a pass-through of greater than $10.00 per month to any tenant. The Resolution also directs staff to continue a program/mechanism that allows low-income tenants with a household income of 50% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) or "Ver Low Income" limit as calculated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), or otherwise demonstrating proof of qualification as low-income, to be reimbursed for the pass-through. Funds for the reimbursement would come from the AEPHI tenant overcharge settlement, which, pursuant to Board Regulation 1271(B), must be used for the benefit of low-income tenants.
