Rent Review Mediation

The City Council established a Rent Review Mediation Commission to provide a forum to assist in the resolution of rent disputes between tenants and landlords for residential rental complexes (with five or more units) and mobilehome parks (with 25 or more spaces).

A park/residential rental complex tenant who receives notice of a proposed rent increase (which he/she feels is unfair or unreasonable) may request review of the proposed rent increase. If the increase is to affect 25% or more tenants with non-fixed leases within the park or residential rental complex over the next 12 months, the request must be signed by at least five tenants affected by the proposed increase.
