Maximum Annual Rent Increase
The current allowable rent increase of 3.1% for certain eligible households who missed an increase from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020 will expire on June 30, 2023.
For Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 from June 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023:
Pursuant to Urgency Ordinance 20-O-2818 and Urgency Ordinance 22-O-2861, the Beverly Hills moratorium on annual rent increases ended on May 31, 2022. Some units are now eligible to receive a rent increase not to exceed 3.10%. However, this increase can only be applied to units where an allowable rent increase for the period of July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020 was not imposed or was imposed at a rate less than 3.10%. If a rent increase of less than 3.10% was imposed between July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, then the rent increase for the period between June 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023 cannot exceed 3.10% when added as the sum of the increase from the period of July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020.
