Rent Control in Fremont: During the Fremont City Council meeting on Tuesday, Oct 13, Council member Vinnie Bacon asked Fremont staff to research options for implementation of rent control and just-cause eviction. After hearing testimony from both supporters and those urging the Council to consider other alternatives (including Bay East staff), the City Council directed City staff to look into rent control and just-cause eviction, and other voluntary options for landlords and tenants to resolve rent increase disputes.  

The Council did ask staff to consult with stakeholders including REALTORS® and property mangers as part of their research. Staff will be conducting stakeholder meetings in the next few weeks.
