California Rent Control- Table of Allowable Rent Percentages

With the signing of AB-1482  Tenant Protection Act of 2019,  many California rental properties are now subject to rent control.  In advance of the State developing an official guide or rent increase table for landlords and tenants, ReLISTO has put together the following chart to give preliminary guidance on what the maximum allowable  rent may be.  Any rent increase as of March 2019 may not exceed the Max Allowable Rent Increase rate as seen in the table below.  Anything over this amount must be adjusted  January 1, 2020.

The table below lists the maximum allowable rent increase rates* effective January 1, 2020 for all California counties. It takes into consideration the local Consumer Price Index (CPI) for  each county then adds this to 5% as allowed by AB 1482.   This rule applies to all rent increases imposed after March 15th, 2019.

Important note: If your local rent control ordinance provides for a lower rent cap, you are exempt from the rent control provisions of AB 1482 but remain subject to the local rent control ordinance (CAA 2019).
