The office staff assists landlords and tenants in understating the impact the Municipal Rent Control Ordinance, Chapter 155, may have on their properties and apartments. Technical assistance is provided on a wide variety of rental issues which cover such matters as: which apartments are subject to local rent control laws; what is the legal base rent; what rent increases the law permits; annual cost of living adjustments; tax surcharges; water/sewer surcharges; capital improvement surcharges; hardship increases; vacancy decontrol and annual registration requirements. Files on all residential properties are maintained for public inspection if owners and/or tenants have questions regarding a particular property.
