Until June 19, 2014, annual rent increases were capped at 4% for apartment complexes of 50 or more units; and 5% for apartment complexes of 49 units or less. Beginning June 20, 2014 permissible annual rent increases for a given month are shown in the table below. Landlords may increase rents as per the CPI-U percentage (%) published every month. For example, if your current lease ends on April 31, 2017, then your landlord will have notified you 30 days in advance in writing (required by law) on April 1, 2017 indicating that you will receive an increase on May 1st using May’s Percentage 2.6%. For example, $1000 x 2.6% = $26.00. Then $1000 + $26 = New Rent = $1026.00
