Rent Stabilization and Just Cause Evictions

At the November 2, 2022 Fairfax Town Council meeting, the Town Council adopted two ordinances to create a just cause eviction and rent stabilization program. Changes to the ordinances were adopted by the Town Council on September 6, 2023 and became effective October 6, 2023.

Although these new ordinances are in effect, their provisions will not be implemented until sufficient agreements for support have been approved by the Town Council. Upon approval, the Council will set an implementation date by resolution.

The ordinances and amendments are now codified in two chapters of the Town Code.

Maximum Allowable Rent Increase

For the period September 1, 2023 to and through August 31, 2024 the maximum allowable rent increase is 2.52% (60% of April, 2023 CPI which was 4.2%)

The next yearly maximum allowable rent increase will be 2.85%, calculated using the April, 2024 CPI and the new rate of 75% which was adopted October 6, 2023. It will be effective on September 1, 2024 to and through August 31, 2025.
