Dear Customer,Like most of California, Santa Clara does not have rent control laws. So a landlord can increase rent as much as they like as long as they give proper notice.The notice requirements vary depending on how much they are raising rent (and over what time period).The California Attorney General has a very helpful publication (complete with examples) to help landlords and tenants ensure that rent increases are properly noticed (and therefore enforceable), as well as information on what remedies exist for tenants when landlords improperly increase rent.
