Table of Allowable Increases for January 2020 California AB 1482 Tenant Protection Act of 2019

Table of Allowable Increases for January 2020 California AB 1482 Tenant Protection Act of 2019

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).

  1. Vi Moreno emailed the following question:
    The property I live in was sold to new buyers. In July 2019. My original rent was 850 on a month to month . However In September I sign a lease with new property owners with a rent increase of 100.00. My term is up on on January 31, 2019. Now thee new owners give me no option but to sign a one year lease with another rent increase of 45.00 but decrease my rent to 920.00 for the last month of term which again will be next month January 2020.. I am confused as to why the decrease only for one month. Why? Is it legal to have my rent increased from a month to month at 850.00 to 995.00 on a 1 year lease with in the first year of new property ownership.

    1. Hello. Thank you for your email. It sounds like your landlord is following the law by discounting your rent for January. Landlords must adjust rent January 1 if they increased rent over the allowable amount. In your case they raised it 11.7% and then reduced it to an 8.23% increase for the month of January. The rest of your post regarding the $45.00 is less clear as from our understanding, the new law does not speak specifically to new lease rent increases.

      Disclaimer: What we write is a reflection of the information being relayed to us as professionals in the rental/leasing housing market- this information be used for educational purposes and for specific and factual information we recommend lawyer is consulted.

  2. Tenant requested to update the flooring in July 2019. Rent was $1000. We agreed that new rent will be $150 more enforced on Dec. 1st 2019. We signed a new agreement in Nov 15th 2019. But the rent control law passed in October. So I think I have to drop it down to $1070 on Jan 1st 2020. In this case do I need to write an addendum to state the rent changed? Is it better to renew a lease agreement without addendum?

    1. Bill-Thanks for your question. Any rent increase as of March 2019 must be adjusted if it exceeds the allowable amount. Sending notice of a rent adjustment is always the best practice in these situations. As a property management company this is the course we are following for our landlord clients in preparation of January 1st.

  3. I live in Los Angeles and my landlord raised my rent 14.5% November 1, 2019. Today is December 21, 2019 and have not received any notice of tolling my rent back. What action should I take regarding what should I pay on January 1, 2020? Should I give a letter to the management company along with my check that I am rolling back my rent to what I was paying March 15,2019 plus the 5% + 3.3%? Or what?

    1. Hi Sherry. I would suggest giving them a them a call or email and ask them directly. As a property manager we encourage each of our tenants to contact us when such situations come up. As a new law your management company may not even know AB1482 was passed. As far as your specific question, this would be best answered by a lawyer or tenant advocacy group since the law as written does not speak directly to such situations. We have a tenant resource page on our website to get started.

  4. Hi there!
    I would like to ask what percentage rent increase in Millbrae and Burlingame for 2020 January.
    Last year for 2019 increased by landlord %2.75 (which equal $50)
    I received letter and the landlord want to increase the rent %5.4 (which equal $100) for 2020.
    Thank you so much an advance!

    1. Hi Lisa.
      Millbrae is located in San Mateo County. Per the table, the maximum allowable rent for San Mateo County is 9.01% for 2020

  5. Good Morning Mr. Baird,

    I have a month to month rental, i originally paid 1,195, and was raised to 1625.00 in August of this year. I see the bill has passed and called my management company to ask how they were going to proceed with the passing of this bill.
    No answer from them.
    I am scheduled to pay my January rent and have attached a copy of this bill, would this be the correct process.

    1. Hi Kim
      Getting back to tenants is super important for us, sorry to hear you are having troubles with your management company. Unfortunately the law does not specify what tenants are to do in this type of scenario. In going to the the website of the person who wrote the bill, Assembly Member David Chiu, it states that the courts are to decide “Q. How is this law enforced? A. Just cause and the rent cap must be enforced through the courts”.

      I suspect this does not help, but since it appears the rent was raised over the allowable amount, you do have a good case to discuss with a lawyer.

  6. Good Morning,
    I live in Nevada County. In January, 2019, my rent was $1,095/month. As of February 1, 2019, my rent was raised to $1,125/month. Effective December 1, 2019, my rent increased to $1,225. I received a notice stating that my rent in January, 2020, is $1,215/month. Cable was included in the rent. Effective September 21, 2019, cable is no longer provided. It will cost approximately $30/month to replace. This seems exorbitant to me and when I look at the charts I don’t understand how this complies with AB 1482.

    Please let me know what you think is the maximum the rent could have been increased. I know that you can only give me your opinion but that is good enough.

    Thank you so very much.

    1. Hi Sonja
      If we were managing your property the $1125.00 number appears to be the number which would need to be used to calculate the allowable rent increase. Nevada County has an allowable increase of 8.3% or 8.34%. I put both numbers as we are seeing many sites round the numbers either up or down. We are recommending to our clients that they round down till an official table is produced by the State.

      With regard to cable I would need to understand more to understand the exact terms of how the cable was provided. For instance if it was part of the lease agreement, then it could not have been severed. This is a good one for the hotline which we have recently discovered. Its our understanding this has been set up to help tenants. Here is the number 1-888-428-7615

  7. Hi, My current rent is $3700, on mid-November we received a letter that our rent wast going to increase by $370. So our January 1, 2020 rent would be $4070. We however, have decided to move-out, and it seems that the landlord will be prorating us the 15 days in January for the $4070 rent. It seems that perhaps this was not done correctly. Will this make the rent increase null? Thank you for the advise.

    1. Carolina.
      Hello. It sounds like you paid full rent for January and provided your 30 day notice to vacate on or before December 15th. In such a scenario, prorating January rent appears to be the correct step.

  8. Hi Eric,
    I live in Santa clara county. My current rent is $2607. With 8.34% rate increase it will come to $2824. But want to know how long this new rate will continue. Will it be for 1 full year or less?

    1. Hi Pradeep,
      It is our understanding that the allowable rent increase amounts are the maximum rates at which rent may be charged within a 12-month period. If your rent is increased to $2,824 beginning on February 1, 2020, for example, your rent cannot be raised to exceed that amount until at least February 1, 2021.

  9. We live in a single-family dwelling (house) and pay $1295 for rent and an additional/separate flat rate of $100 dollars for water per month. We just received a 30-day notice that our rent/water will now be combined and we’ll owe $1595/month. Because this increase is over 10%, is the landlord required to provide a 60-day notice of this increase?

    1. Hi Sarah,
      Assuming that your home is exempt from AB 1482, your tenancy may be subject to another new law that will take effect January 1–AB 1110. If so, a rent increase that exceeds 10% might actually require 90-day notice.

  10. Hello. I am about to become a homeowner and I will be renting the houses in San Bernardino county. My question is, as a new landlord can I increase the current rent on the existing tenants? If so, is there a limit amount?

    1. Hi Dee,
      Congratulations on becoming a new homeowner! As a new landlord, you will be assuming the rights and obligations of the existing leases, so you may not raise rents until they expire. If the current tenancy is eligible for a rent increase and the property is subject to AB 1482, for 2020 in San Bernardino county the allowable rent increase rate is 7.80% on the gross rental rate as of March 15, 2019. It is a good rule of thumb to always consult a real estate attorney or licensee when changing tenancy terms such as rent increases.

    1. Hi Randy,
      If the lease term has expired, in San Bernardino county in 2020, rent may be raised as much as 7.8% on the gross rent amount as of March 15, 2019. For increases less than 10%, a minimum of 30 days notice is required.

  11. I live in a senior citizen lihtc complex in Tracy, San Joaquin Co. Yesterday I received a notice that eff Feb 1st my rent will be increased by 5%. Rent was raised last April by 2.6%. Isn’t there a time period of 60-90 days before increase? Entire complex are Social Security recipients and we didn’t get that much increase to afford this rent hike.

    1. Hi Sharon,
      For rent increases less than 10%, 30-days notice is required. As of January 1, 2020, 90-day notice is required for increases higher than 10% according to AB 1110.

  12. Disabled, senior sibling with no income other than SSI lives in subsidized San Mateo County Housing Authority apartment, managed by Bridge. His estimated monthly rent may increase by $149 to over $545. Is HA subject to AB 1482 terms?

    1. Hi Kimberly,
      There are a number of factors used to determine whether or not a property is exempt from the provisions of AB 1482–I would suggest contacting an attorney and/or calling the hotline set up for such questions: 1-888-428-7615. It is important to note that if a property is exempt from these provisions, the property owner is required to notify residents of this exemption.

  13. my grandson was renting an apartment from me for $700/month . going rate is like $1400/month . since my grandson moved out , can i raise rent to $1400/month now ?

    1. Hi Ron,
      The bill only considers rent increase limits for ongoing tenancies. This means that once the property is vacant, the landlord is allowed to lease the property at market rate regardless of what rent was being charged previously.

  14. Hello,
    I own an apartment complex in Nevada County (Truckee California) in which I raised rents across the board by $200 on May 2019 after a survey showed we were very much under market by at least $300 a month. We have several long term tenants that have been with us for years and did not raise rent in this complex for nearly 5 years. With the passing of AB 1482, I realize we have to now reduce the rent since the increase was on average around 14%. I have reduced the rents for the tenants based on the law for Jan 1, 2020. Since I raised the rents in May 2019 – can I increase rents in 2020 in light that I have to reduce rents? Thank you.

    1. Hi Patricia,
      For units to which AB 1482 applies, the rent can be raised twice in a 12-month period, as long as cumulatively the increases do not exceed the rent cap. If you are reducing the rent to the maximum increase allowed starting January 1, 2020, your property will be eligible for another increase after 12 months, or January 2021.

  15. Hi there,
    I had a quick question about the increase. My apartment complex updated our apartment we’ve been in for 10 years in November 2019. We were out for 2 weeks and moved back in and signed an extended lease. Because we moved out for 2 weeks and came back, are we disqualified from the increase cap?
    Thank you for your help.

      1. Hi Shawna,
        It sounds like the lease was extended based on the original agreement, which would indicate that you were still technically a tenant during the two week period. If this is correct, your tenancy could qualify for the protections of this legislation, but depending on the type of capital improvements that were made and where the property is located could make this increase exempt from the provisions of AB 1482. Some localities in California allow landlords to pass through as much as 70% of the cost of capital improvement to the tenant. Unfortunately, the Tenant Protection Act itself does not address this. If you feel comfortable doing so, you could reach out to your landlord to request documentation explaining the increase in more detail. Ultimately, if you believe this is an unlawful increase, you should contact an attorney or call the AB 1482 hotline at 1-888-428-7615.

  16. Hello – I live in an in-law cottage that is a separate dwelling unit from the front house where my landlord resides / The other day I was advised that he wants to sell the property. What are my rights? My lease is up so I’m currently month to month – what happens when new owners come in? Can they kick me out? I’m really unsure of this situation and don’t want to be in the dark when he finally decides to notify me of the sale – thank you

    1. Hi Maria,
      When a landlord decides to take their property off of the rental market, they can terminate the month-to-month tenancy through a no-fault just cause eviction. If the property (and your tenancy) is subject to the Tenant Protection Act and your landlord proceeds with a no-fault just cause eviction, they may be obligated to pay you the equivalent of one-month’s rent for relocation assistance OR they may waive your last month’s rent. I strongly suggest that you contact an attorney with any additional questions you may have.

  17. Hi I own some houses in Azusa California that I have for rent. With the new laws that came through for 2020 what is the maximum I can increase the rent per year? I saw that your chart says 8.23% however I also read that it can be capped at 7.9%. Where can I get a copy of the new tenant/landlord rights and responsibilities?

    1. Hi Lily,
      The first step for you is to determine if your properties are subject to AB 1482 and/or any local rent control ordinance. If you own single-family homes, there is a good chance they are exempt from these new provisions. If not exempt and the properties are actually subject to both local rent control and AB 1482, your maximum allowable rent increase will be whichever rent cap is lower. There are many articles and posts online (like this one) that discuss the Tenant Protection Act, but if you would like more “official” information, you can read the bill text HERE or visit the FAQs on Assemblymember David Chiu’s website HERE. You could also reach out to a property management company that serves LA county as they will have a better understanding of LA County’s Rent Stabilization Ordinance.

  18. Hi! My rent increased by 18.5% in June 2019. However, a notice of this increase was sent out in March (unclear on the specific date). Since the increase did not take place until June, should it be rolled back now? Or since the notice was sent out before the March cutoff, the rent increase doesn’t have to follow the new law of allowable rent increase? Please advise.

    1. Hi Alexandria,
      The law focuses on the rent amount as of March 15, 2019 and does not indicate that prior notice would have any bearing when determining the applicable rent on January 1, 2020.

  19. Quick question on if the the new rent law for San Diego is retroactive.

    Starting in January 2019 our rent was $1800
    In July we had an increase of $100 to $1900
    As of last week the landlord wants to increase this another $100 to $2000, effective 3/1/2020.

    This seems like it is in violation because of the short time frame, is it? And if so, do you happen to know how it should be handled?

    Thank you,

    1. Hi Danielle,
      I cannot speak to any local rent control ordinance that may be applicable to your home in San Diego, but if the property is subject to the statewide Tenant Protection Act (AB 1482), the landlord would be allowed to increase the rent again in March as long as the percent increase in rent from March 15, 2019 to the proposed increase date of March 1, 2020 does not exceed the allowable rate.

  20. Hello Eric,

    I was wondering if you were able to answer a question that I have regarding CPI’s and how they are calculated per county?

    Thank you!

  21. I need to resubmit the noteI just submitted because it got fouled up. It should read like this:

    In March of 2019, rent was $2100.
    Raised $100 in July 2019.
    New notification going up another $68 in March 2020.
    I am just wondering if these numbers are legal because I don’t fully understand the March 2019 ruling. And why my landlord is increasing rent right in March 2020.

    1. Hi Markf,
      The law is effective January 1, 2020, but to calculate any allowable increases as of Jan 1, the rent that was in effect as of March 15, 2019 must be used. That means that your landlord is allowed to increase your rent as of March 2019 ($2,100) by the percentage shown in the table for your county as of January 2020. If, as in your case, the rent was raised by less than the allowable amount Between March 2019 and January 2020, landlords are allowed to raise the rent a second time to reach the maximum allowable amount. In July, your rent was raised a little less than 5%, so the second increase in March will make the overall increase 8%. Hope this helps!
