Through the years, we have learned of several fraud scams against program participants and landlords. Be vigilant and protect your assets. Please note, landlord participation in the program is free! This includes all briefing materials, paperwork, and workshops. Any personal account information is obtained through official forms. Never give your personal information over the phone.
Requesting a Rent Increase
Things to consider before submitting a rent increase request:
- For all units, the requested rent amount must be reasonable. HACSB performs a rent reasonableness analysis by locating at least three nearby comparable units with similar amenities renting at the same or higher rates.
- For some programs, the maximum rent amount may also be limited by the applicable payment standard, affordability to the tenant, and/or funding availability.
- State Law (AB1482) also limits the amount of rent that can be charged at the time of a rent increase. Not all units are subject to AB1482. Please visit the California State Legislature website for details on which units are subject to AB1482 and which are exempt. If your unit is subject to AB1482:
- The rent may not be increased more than two times in any twelve-month period; and
- The amount of any rent increase cannot exceed the lower of the following, applied to the lowest gross rental rate charged for the unit at any time during the twelve months prior to the effective date of the increase:
- Current Consumer Price Index (CPI) + 5%; or
- For these reasons, not all units will be approved with rents at the payment standard amount.
To start the rental increase review, first serve the tenant with a 60-day or 90-day notice of the change. Then, no later than 10 calendar days from the notice issuance date, provide HACSB with a copy of the notice via mail, fax, or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for review.
Finally, if the rent increase is approved, the Housing Authority will provide a notice of change to tenant and housing authority rent portions.
