Rent Control in Jersey City
Automatic Rental Increase

This Web version COPYRIGHT 2002 GET NJ

The maximum cost of living increase is 4% or the Consumer Price Index (CPI-W) whichever is less. In recent times the Cost of Living Increase has been less than 4%. The CPI-W is measured regionally and the one used is for the New York, Northern New Jersey Area. The statistics are published by the U.S. Department of Labor. You may obtain the information by calling the Division of Tenant/Landlord Relations at (201) 547-5127.

This Cost of Living Increase is allowed once every twelve (12) months from the last anniversary increase. Tenants who are given a rent increase above the permitted amount may file a complaint with the Division of Tenant/Landlord Relations, Rent Leveling Office, located on the 4th floor at 30 Montgomery Street, Jersey City, New Jersey. Office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. There is a two year statute of limitation on any illegal rent increase, therefore tenants who dispute their rents should file their challenge within the two year period.
