Effective January 1, 2020, AB 1482 limits how much a property owner or manager can increase their rent in a 12-month period.
Rent increases in any 12-month period are limited to 5% (percent) plus the change in inflation from April 1 of the prior year to April of the current year, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the area which the property is located. Some regions do not have a United States Bureau of Labor Statistics report, in which case the California CPI is used (i.e. Imperial County).
