The Oakland Rent Adjustment Program announced the annual rent increase for rent increases between July 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023. As a result, rent for Oakland tenants living in rental units covered by the Oakland Rent Ordinance’s rent control provisions may be increased by an astonishing 6.7%.

The Oakland Rent Ordinance consists of a rent control component, which protects tenants from drastic rent increases, a just cause for eviction component, which limits the circumstances where a landlord may serve a termination of tenancy notice, and an anti-harassment component, which protects Oakland tenants from harassing conduct.  Tenants forced to pay rent above the limitations set forth by the Oakland Rent Ordinance may be entitled to money damages.

Oakland tenants not covered by the Oakland Rent Control may be covered by California Rent Control, also known as the California Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (AB 1482).  Click here to read more about California Rent Control.
