Effective March 1, 2021 through February 28, 2022, the allowable annual increase amount is 0.7%. 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 1.1% as posted in November 2020 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
To calculate the dollar amount of the 0.7% annual rent increase, multiply the tenant's base rent by .007. For example, if the tenant's base rent is $1,500.00, the annual increase would be calculated as follows: $1,500.00 x .007 = $10.50. The tenant's new base rent would be $1,510.50 ($1,500.00 + $10.50 = $1,510.50).
