Rent Stabilization

Rent Stabilization includes a variety of ordinances (or in Mountain View a charter amendment) limiting the amount rent can be increased, usually within one year. Some jurisdictions tie the increase to CPI and others state a percentage such as 3 or 4%. Nearby, East Palo Alto, San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, Los Gatos and San Jose have some form of rent control.
