Landlords of units subject to rent control are required to register new tenancies within 30 days of the start date. Landlords may log in to their registry accounts to report a new tenancy or to update a unit's current rent. See the user guide for more information.
Each year, before payment of the annual fee is due, landlords of registered properties will have an opportunity to verify information in the Rent Registry, apply for any new exemptions from the annual fee, and certify that vacant units will remain vacant. Notices are mailed to all landlords when this period begins. Landlords will also receive a mailed invoice with the amount owed based on current information in the registry.
Do you need to:
- Submit registration information for an unregistered property?
- Register a home that has been recently added to the rental market?
- Apply for a exemption after the payment period has begun?
Contact the Rent Program at email@example.com or 510-747-7520. Staff can prepare the property in the Rent Registry to allow you to make changes online and/or direct you to the proper forms to submit.
