The San Jose City Council this week delayed a decision on tightening its rent control policies, but the issue is coming back in just a few days.

The council decided to take up the stricter rent control proposal again Tuesday, June 23. See this San Jose Mercury News story for more details on the June 16 meeting.

Among the proposed changes:

  • Reducing the current 8 percent limit on rent increase
  • Eliminating the debt service pass through
  • Enacting a just cause eviction law
  • Mandating rental owners accept Section 8 vouchers

The City Council, which meets at San Jose City Hall, Council Chambers, 200 E. Santa Clara St., is expected to take up rent control during the afternoon session Tuesday.

Stay tuned for an email from CAA Tri-County on next steps.
