Rent Stabilization

Rent gouging, excessive fees, and short notice of rent increases destabilize families and workers, and is the number one contributor to Washington’s housing crisis. It’s time for the legislature to stabilize rent increases and provide tenant households with more predictability on future rent increases. Unlike rent control which freezes rental rates on a unit, rent stabilization regulates the relationship between the landlord and tenant and provides predictability to rent increases that a tenant can expect.
