For rent-controlled units, the annual allowable increase amount effective March 1, 2023 through February 29, 2024 is 3.6%. This amount is based on 60% of the increase in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers in the Bay Area, which was 6% as posted in November 2022 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. To calculate the dollar amount of the 3.6% annual rent increase, multiply the tenant's base rent by .036. For example, if the tenant's base rent is $2,000.00, the annual increase would be calculated as follows: $2,000.00 x .036 = $72.00. The tenant's new base rent would be $2,072.00 ($2,000.00 + $72.00).
The annual allowable increase amount effective March 1, 2022 through February 28, 2023 is 2.3%.
