ARE ALL OF THE TENANCIES ON YOUR PROPERTY
PROPERLY REGISTERED AT THE RENT BOARD?

NOW is the time to make sure that all new tenancies have been recorded with the Rent Stabilization Board.  It is in your best interest to provide Board staff with complete and accurate information for all new tenancies by filing Vacancy Registration ("VR") Forms. 

Failure to record a new tenancy may result in the following:

  • denial of upward rent adjustments including the Annual General Adjustment (AGA),
  • incorrect determination of the apparent lawful rent ceiling. 

Failure to record a new tenancy could also result in tenant filing of an Individual Rent Adjustment or Rent Withholding for Failure to Register petition. 

Regulation 1013(K) requires that all tenancies beginning on or after January 1, 1996, be recorded with the Rent Stabilization Board by filing Vacancy Registration Forms. 

For more information or to have Vacancy Registration ("VR") Forms mailed to you, call us at 510-981-7368 (981-rent) or e-mail rent@ci.berkeley.ca.us
