Annual Registration Requirement for FY24-25

Published on May 07, 2024

The Alameda Rent Program will now be requiring landlords and property managers to submit annual registration statements for fully-regulated rental properties, beginning with the 2024-2025 program year. This represents a significant shift compared to the Rent Registry’s first four years of operation. The Rent Program is committed to helping landlords and managers navigate this change. Please make arrangements to update your registration by no later than August 31, 2024.

Why Annual Registration?

The Rent Ordinance does require an annual registration statement for units that are not exempt from rent control under State Law; however, this provision was not enforced during the pandemic. More importantly, collecting tenancy information on an annual basis will allow the Rent Program to provide much more clear, precise communications about how much a landlord is permitted to increase the rent for a particular rental unit under local law. It is our hope that this will be of benefit to landlords and tenants alike. Up-to-date tenancy data is a necessary part of such an effort.

How to Register

Online Registration: The Rent Program strongly recommends that landlords take advantage of the Rent Registry to meet the annual registration requirement. Landlords will be able to confirm information already in the registry, provide only necessary updates, file for any exemptions, and pay the annual program fee online—all at once in a single location. The online portal will accept registration submissions beginning June 1, 2024. Visit

Registration by Form: Landlords may file a registration statement using Form RP-221(B).

Forms may be submitted by email, by mail, or placed in the drop box in the lobby of City Hall West. If registering by form, do not submit a program fee payment at this time. You will be invoiced at a later date. More information on fee payment is below. Annual registration and program fees are both due by no later than August 31, 2024.

Rent Registry Workshops

Beginning in June 2024, the Alameda Rent Program will be hosting several Rent Registry clinics in the Alameda Free Library. Staff will be available to assist landlords and property managers navigating the portal for annual registration and program fee payment. Staff may also be available by appointment to meet at City Hall West or via Zoom to assist in navigating the registry.

Program Fees for FY24-25

Annual registration and payment of annual program fees are two separate requirements. Fees for the 2024-2025 fiscal year will be announced by May 20, 2024. Beginning June 1, 2024, landlords may use the Rent Registry to submit online payment (along with registration). Invoices based on registration data will be mailed by July 1, 2024, for landlords who wish to pay by check.

Total fees due are based on the registration data submitted by the landlord. Landlords must apply for any fee exemptions before making payment and by no later than August 1, 2024.
