Maximum Annual Rent Increase
On June 27th, 2023, the City Council voted to allow the Rent Stabilization Division to return to the calculations of the allowable annual rent increase for Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 tenants outlined in BHMC 4-5-503 and BHMC 4-6-3. 
The allowable annual increases based on these calculations are as follows:
Chapter 6 (updated annually in June, most recently in June 2023): 3.2%
Chapter 5 (updated monthly, effective September 13, 2023): 4.7%
The vast majority of tenants in rent stabilized buildings in Beverly Hills fall under the Chapter 6 guidance. Chapter 5 tenants are those whose tenancies began at $600 per month or less and who occupy buildings constructed prior to September 20, 1978. If you would like to verify whether one of your current tenants is Chapter 5, please contact our office at 310-285-1031. 
Only one rent increase for each tenant is permitted for every 12 months, so landlords should verify that 12 months have elapsed since a tenant's last increase prior to implementing any new increase. Additionally, a 30-day Notice must be delivered personally to tenants or served by mail as described in California Civil Code (§) 1013 (see also California Civil Code (§) 827). 
If you have any further questions or concerns related to the allowable increases for the current period, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Rent Stabilization Division by calling 310-285-1031 or by emailing
