If a rental unit is not subject to local rent control or AB 1482, and the state’s anti-price gouging law has not been triggered, market conditions determine the frequency and amount of rent increases.
If a local rent control ordinance or AB 1482 applies, there is a limit on both frequency and amount. If the anti-price gouging law applies, there is limit on amount.
The procedure for increasing rent is generally the same and depends on the amount of the increase. For an increase in rent that is 10 percent or less in any 12-month period, the landlord must provide at least 30 days’ advance written notice to a month-to-month resident.
If a unit is exempt from rent control and the state’s anti-price gouging law has not been triggered, for an increase in rent that is more than 10 percent, the landlord must provide at least 90-days’ advance notice to a month-to-month resident.
