The California Apartment Association has voiced strong opposition to a proposal that would drastically increase fees on tens of thousands of rental housing providers in San Jose, a change driven by the city’s own admitted miscalculations. 

The proposed increase pertains to two specific fees associated with housing regulations. The first is related to the city’s rent control ordinance, known as the Apartment Rent Ordinance (ARO), and the second is linked to the city’s “just cause” for eviction provisions, known as the Tenant Protection Ordinance (TPO). The Housing Department’s proposal would see the fee for the TPO skyrocket from $15 to $34 per unit, while the fee for the ARO would rise from $75 to $85 per unit. Measured over six years, the increases are even more outlandish.
