Tenants, know your rights!

How Much Can My Landlord Charge in Rent?

Depending on whether you live in a city that already has a rent control ordinance, allowable rent increases may vary. If your unit is not covered by a local rent control ordinance, but you already know you’re protected by the Tenant Protection Act of 2019, our calculator will help you make sure you’re not being overcharged for your rent.
