San Jose: Save the Date: Ellis Act Ordinance Community Meeting
The Californer/10023687

The purpose of this meeting is to discuss possible amendments to the Ordinance. This ordinance applies to situations when a landlord or developer plans to demolish a rent stabilized apartment to build a new housing development.

On February 5, 2019, City Council asked staff to bring back research on "recontrol," which occurs when newly built apartments are subject to rent control because the apartments replaced previously rent controlled apartments. The current Ellis Act Ordinance says:
  • 50% of new apartments built, or the same number of apartments were removed from the market, are subject to the City's Apartment Rent Ordinance; and      An owner may seek an exemption from these recontrol requirements if 20% of the new apartments are built on-site as deed-restricted affordable rental housing consistent with the City's Inclusionary Housing Ordinance.
