On June 4, 2018, the Albany City Council approved an ordinance that added Section 5-25 “Rent Review" to the Albany Municipal Code establishing a rent review program. The ordinance regulates most residential rental units in Albany and provides a mediation process for qualifying rent increases. Landlord participation in the rent review process is mandatory, but all recommendations are non-binding.
The Rent Review Program was directed by the City Council on June 4, 2018. The Rent Review Ordinance and associated rent review program will be effective November 2, 2018.
