Legislation that exists in some U.S. states helps protect monthly rental fees from rising above national averages. This legislation is known as a rent control clause. Some lease agreements include this clause to protect renters from unnecessary rent increases each year. This clause could be beneficial to a person hoping to maximize affordable rent prices charged by some property owners.
Rent Control Limitations
There are dual types of rent control offered in some cities to control monthly rent charged by landlords. The first type is provided to protect a single tenant with a single agreement. These clauses are added inside of a tenant lease agreement to be enforced during the entire term.
The second type of clause is designed to protect every renter who rents a specific property during the entire rental period. This control over vacancy can be helpful to renters living in areas where rent is likely to be increased each year based on economic increases.
Eviction Clause for Rent Control
To protect renters from unlawful eviction, most clauses include policies that establish proper eviction procedures. This can prevent a renter from being illegally removed from a property without just cause of a landlord. This is designed to ensure that rent stabilization is provided during the lease term.
States that enforce rent control policies could hold landlords liable for evictions that are not known as a dominant motive. All unlawful evictions must be handled according to state law apart from the procedures listed in the state rent control clauses. Florida is one state that does not participate in any rent control clause. Property owners are allowed to charge any price for rental homes.
