Rent Calculator

Renters eligible for protection under the Tenant Protection Act are protected against rent increases that exceed 10% in a one year period or the cost of living + 5%, whichever is lower. If you received a rent increase, you can use our calculator to help you determine what the allowable increase is under the law, and if your rent increase exceeds the limit. Eligible renters who got a rent increase anytime on or after March 15, 2019 should use the rent calculator, as increases in 2019 may be rolled back resulting in a rent reduction. Before using this calculator, check your eligibility here!
