California tenants may see a 10% rent increase due to Tenant Protection Act

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Housing prices in San Diego are already incredibly high compared to other cities but now rent could be increased by up to 10%!

A law passed in 2019 was kicked back into effect on Monday. The “California Tenant Protection Act” limits annual rent increases to no more than 5% plus the inflation rate *or* 10%  whichever is lower.

Now since inflation is so high a 10% rent increase is actually lower than 5% plus the local inflation rate.

KUSI’s Elizabeth Alvarez has more details on the rate increases.
