In South Pasadena, residential tenants cannot receive a rent increase of more than 8.8%.

If you have received a notice of rent increase, this rent calculator will help determine whether your rent increase is legal.

Because we are a volunteer-run group, we ask that you fill out our membership form if you need assistance with tenant issues.
