Subchapter C: Standards for Individual Rent Ceiling Adjustments


1261. Purpose of Subchapter

The purpose of this subchapter is to protect tenants from unwarranted rent increases, while at the same time allowing rent levels which provide landlords with a fair return on their investment. It is the intent of these regulations that individual upward adjustments in the rent ceilings be made only when the landlord demonstrates that such adjustments are necessary to provide the landlord with a fair return on investment under the Rent Ordinance (Sections 1262, 1267, 1268, 1269, 1270, 1272, 1273 and 1276) or as required by the California or United States Constitution (Section 1275).
