Rent Controls


Definition of "Rent controls"

Governmental policy establishing the maximum amount of rent landlords can charge tenants. A tenant who feels overcharged, may contact the appropriate rental control office. While rent control does contain housing rental rates, it also discourages private investment in additional rental housing because of rental restrictions.
