Annual program fee amounts updated for 2021-2022
Published on May 05, 2021
This week the Alameda City Council set new amounts for the annual Rent Program fee for the upcoming 2021-2022 program year. The following fees are owed on all rental units in the City of Alameda:
- $148 for fully regulated units: This includes all multi-unit properties (two or more units on a parcel) built before February 1995.
- $100 for partially regulated units: This includes single-family homes (and any permitted accessory dwelling units on the same lot), condominiums, and townhouses, as well as multi-unit properties built after February 1995.
- No fee is due for privately owned units in the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program: The City Council has again agreed to cover these fees to encourage participation in the subsidization program.
The fee is owed on any residential unit that will be rented to a tenant at any time during the fiscal year, from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022.
Landlords will be able to pay fees online starting June 1, 2021, by logging in to the Alameda Rent Registry, where they may also verify registration information and submit requests for any new exemptions. Landlords will also receive a mailed invoice indicating the fees due, with instructions on how to pay by check.
The City Council also extended the due date for payment, so that no late penalties will be imposed until after September 30, 2021.
