Rent Control in Jersey City

This Web version COPYRIGHT 2002 GET NJ

Of 567 cities in the State of New Jersey 124 have adopted rent control laws. In Jersey City Rent Control was adopted in 1973. The phenomenon of rent control in the U.S. began after World War I and again during World War II in response to the housing shortage caused by the wars. Although most communities lifted rent controls after the last war, New York City kept them. This ultimately gave rise to further rent control ordinances. In the 1960's, rent control spread to Massachusetts, and in the early 1970's down the eastern seaboard to New Jersey, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Today two more states, California and Connecticut, also practice Rent Control.

MAYOR GLENN CUNNINGHAM has continued this protection for tenants and through this circular the community at large will have a better understanding of the rights and obligations provided under Jersey City's Rent Leveling Ordinance.
