Proposed Revisions to Newark Rent Control Ordinance

Newark City Council has proposed dramatic revisions to its rent control ordinance, which will be considered by Council in May. The proposal would:

  • significantly reduce allowable rent increases;
  • limit the ability to recover expenses for capital improvements; and
  • impose an unreasonable compliance threshold.
