I am experiencing unexpected rent increases. How should I proceed?

The City of Santa Ana has adopted a Rent Stabilization and Just Cause Eviction Ordinance (“Ordinance”) that limits rent increases to the lower of 3 percent per year, or 80 percent of the percent change in the Consumer Price Index (“CPI”) over the most recent 12-month period for certain residential rental units and mobilehome spaces in the City of Santa Ana. The Ordinance also provides “just cause” eviction protections for most tenants that occupy a residential real property or mobilehome for 30 days.

For more information about the Ordinance, including helpful resources to help you determine if your unit is covered, please visit the Rent Stabilization and Just Cause Eviction Ordinance webpage or contact rso@santa-ana.org or (714) 667-2209.
