Warning:  If you are reading this, it may be too late!

Rent control is a highly charged, emotional issue.   REALTORS® oppose rent control for a variety of valid reasons.  There are a number of strategies that they can employ to defeat rent control at the ballot box or at city hall.  However, the best strategy against rent control is a proactive housing program.  This requires an understanding of local housing issues, considerable dialogue about housing policies, and constructive involvement in the local political and planning process.

C.A.R. has compiled a variety of resources and information to assist members and local Association staff facing a rent control issue in their local community. For more information, please see the links below:
