How often and how much can a landlord raise a tenant’s rent?

Because there is no rent control in Orange County a landlord can raise a tenants rent as much and as often as they wish, so long as they give proper notice of the change in terms. Proper notice means that an increase of less than 10% requires 30 days written notice before the increase takes effect. However, increases of more than 10% in any 12 month period, requires 60 days written notice before the increase takes effect. (For more information regarding proper notice, please see the section on defective notices.)
