After an extended period of time where the maximum rent increase for rent controlled apartments has been 3%, starting July 2019 the increase will be 4% as the allowable increase is tied to inflation which has risen slightly recently.

[Note – if your landlord pays for gas or electricity they can add an addition 1% for each utility]

The greater allowable increase will most likely come as a surprise to renters in the area who are already faced with some of the highest rents in the US.
