Rent Review, Landlord Fee to be Discussed
In response to the rapidly rising cost of rent in the Bay Area, including the City of Fremont, the Fremont City Council voted to replace the previous rent review process on October 3, 2017. The Rent Review Ordinance went into effect on January 1, 2018 and provides a process for tenants and landlords to address concerns about rent increases in the form of consultation and/or mediation. In addition, if the rent increase is more than five percent in any 12-month period, either party may request a public hearing before the Rent Review Board. Unlike rent control, the recommendations resulting from the rent review process are non-binding.

On December 5, 2017, the Fremont City Council authorized the setting of an annual per unit fee on all residential rental units in order to cover the costs of administering the new ordinance. On April 10, 2018, the Fremont City Council will consider the adoption of a $24 per unit fee for Fiscal Year 17/18 at their regularly scheduled Council meeting that begins at 7 p.m. at Fremont City Hall, 3300 Capitol Ave., in Fremont. For more information on the new Rent Review Ordinance, please visit If you have any questions, please call (510) 733-4945, or email
