Overview of the Apartment Rent Ordinance
On Tuesday, April 24, 2018, the City Council took action to amend the Ellis Act Ordinance, Tenant Protection Ordinance (TPO), and Apartment Rent Ordinance (ARO). Over the past several months, we have worked with community and stakeholders to develop recommendations for these challenging issues. The following list the results from the City Council meeting:
A landlord can petition to pass through costs to tenants for the following reasons:
•Threaten to sue, evict or terminate the tenancy of the tenant(s).
•Harass you until you leave.
•Reduce your services.
•Increase your rent.
•Impose a security deposit or any other new charge.
