If we are talking about Pasadena, CA, then there is no rent control there... According to the CA Dept of Consumer Affairs only the following cities have rent control laws on the books:.

So the landlord can increase the rent by any amount with proper notice. However under state law, if the increase is less than 10%, it takes a 30 day written notice. If more than 10% it takes a 60 day notice before the rent increase takes effect.
