Helps tenants and landlords understand their rights and responsibilities in all situations.

Together, the Rent Control Board and the Rent Control Agency carry out the Rent Control Law’s five basic goals:

  • Controlling residential rents;
  • Limiting the grounds for eviction;
  • Preserving rental housing;
  • Encouraging maintenance; and
  • Ensuring rental-property owners a fair return.
