Effective March 1, 2013 through February 28, 2014, the allowable annual increase amount is 1.9%. In accordance with Rules and Regulations Section 1.12, this amount is based on 60% of the percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for All Urban Consumers in the San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose region for the 12-month period ending October 31, which was 3.2% as posted in November 2012 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
To calculate the dollar amount of the 1.9% annual rent increase, multiply the tenant's base rent by .019. For example, if the tenant's base rent is $1,250.00, the annual increase would be calculated as follows: $1,250.00 x .019 = $23.75. The tenant's new base rent would be $1,273.75 ($1,250.00 + $23.75 = $1,273.75).
