On March 1, 2016, the City Council adopted the Rent Review, Rent Stabilization, and Limitations on Evictions Ordinance (the Ordinance). The Ordinance provides a framework for reviewing rents, terminating tenancies, and paying relocation benefits for “no fault” terminations. Rent increases above 5% are subject to a hearing
before the City’s Rent Review Advisory Committee. Termination of tenancies and calculation of relocation benefits are regulated under the Ordinance. A copy of the Ordinance can be found in Chapter VI, Article XV of the Alameda Municipal Code on the City’s website at: www.alamedarentprogram.org/ordinance-3148-overview
The Rent Program Fee covers the cost of administering the Ordinance. City Council Resolution No. 15388, adopted on June 5, 2018, sets a Rent Program Fee of $106 that property owners must pay for each Rental Unit that was rented or available to rent as of July 1, 2019.
