Rent Stabilization Ordinance and Regulations/Municipal Code


2010 Rent Stabilization and Just Cause for Eviction Ordinance:

In June 2010, 79% of East Palo Alto voters passed the City's comprehensive rent stabilization law, known as the Rent Stabilization and Eviction for Good Cause Ordinance. The purpose of the Ordinance, which regulates most residential rents in East Palo Alto, is to provide protections for residential tenants in the City from unreasonable rent increases, to protect tenants from arbitrary, discriminatory or retaliatory evictions and to assure landlords the right to a fair return.
Beginning on its effective date in August 2010, this Ordinance governs residential tenancies in the City except for mobile home park space tenancies.
