Rent Control

Some cities and counties in California, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Washington, DC, have laws that limit the amount of rent landlords may charge. Some of these ordinances also restrict the circumstances under which landlords may terminate month-to-month rental agreements or decide not to renew leases. Local rent control ordinances (also called “rent stabilization” or “maximum rent regulation” laws) are now in effect in some of the country’s largest cities, including New York City, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Newark, San Jose, and Oakland.â
