    Union City Rent Review Program


    Rent Review Ordinance


    On June 27, 2017, the City Council of Union City approved an ordinance that added Chapter 5.55 “Rent Review” to the City’s municipal code. The ordinance regulates most residential rental units in Union City and provides a mediation process for qualifying rent increases. Landlord participation in the mediation process is mandatory; however, all recommendations are non-binding.




    Notice of Availability of Rent Review

    Renters may request non-binding mediation when:

    •A renter receives a rent increases over 7%; OR
    •A renter receives more than one rent increase in a 12 month period and the total of all rent increases exceeds 7%  in the 12 month period


    Landlords are required to provide tenants with a Notice of Availability of Rent Review when issuing any rent increase.
