The San Francisco Rent Board announced the allowable annual increase for rent increases between March 1, 2022 and February 28, 2023.  Rent increases for San Francisco tenants living in rental units covered by the San Francisco Rent Ordinance’s rent control provisions are capped at 2.3% during this time.  With certain exceptions, such as rent increase banking, landlords may not serve a rent increase on a covered unit exceeding 2.3%.

The San Francisco Rent Ordinance consists of a rent control component, which protects tenants from drastic rent increases, and a just cause for eviction component, which limits when a landlord may serve an eviction.  Tenants forced to pay rent above San Francisco rent control limitations are entitled to money damages.

San Francisco tenants not covered by San Francisco Rent Control may be covered by California Rent Control, also known as the California Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (AB 1482).  Click here for more information.
