Rent control in Glendale
Glendale has taken an inventive approach to rent control. While there was a temporary freeze on rent increases above 5 percent, Glendale has finally come up with a permanent solution, dubbed "the right to lease ordinance."
In a 3-0 vote, the City Council approved new rules that do not limit rent hikes; however, if the landlord elects to raise the rent by more than 7 percent, the tenant is entitled to relocation payment assistance. Several exceptions apply - please consult with an attorney.
