Owners: It's Time to Register ARO Units on the Rent Registry

Post Date:08/17/2018

The ARO rent registry is live!

The rent registry can be accessed here. Rent stabilized owners will receive a letter that will include unique login credentials to activate their account and register their ARO units.

The mailers will be staggered in three phases with each phase implemented 2 weeks apart. The first phase will begin on August 20, 2018, and will target property owners of smaller properties first. Phase two and three will consist of a mix of property owners with small and large properties. Owners will be asked to provide information on their rent-stabilized apartments annually regarding monthly rent, vacancies, and other information.

During the April 19, 2016, and January 31, 2017, Council meetings, City staff received direction to implement a rent registry to monitor changes in rents; assess trends and changes in housing stock; and facilitate enforcement of the Apartment Rent Ordinance (ARO). The rent registry was developed through stakeholder feedback and testing, as well as with input from International Business Machines (IBM) through the Smarter Cities Challenge. The registry will provide valuable data as a means of measuring effectiveness of the rent stabilization program and allow staff to proactively identify program compliance by landlords.

Workshops will be provided on how to use the system. Information about the workshops is included in the bottom of this e-mail. Please contact Monica Velarde of the Rent Stabilization Program to RSVP for a workshop or with any questions about the rent registry at (408) 795-1808 or monica.velarde@sanjoseca.gov.
