Rent Leveling

On March 10, 2021, the Mayor and Council of the City of Asbury Park adopted ordinance No. 2021-5, entitled “An Ordinance Establishing A Rent Leveling Board As Well As Rules That Regulate The Price of Rent and Rate of Rent Increase For Certain Rental Housing Within The City of Asbury Park, And Amending and Supplementing The Code Of The City Of Asbury Park To Establish A New Chapter 15 Thereof”. 

The purpose of the ordinance is to provide stability to housing costs of renter households and reduce significant increases in rents. For the Rent Leveling Ordinance, click here.

The ordinance applies to rental properties with five (5) or more units available for rental housing. 

Owner/occupant landlords that manage the units where they reside are required to register as well. 

Landlords and renters must fill out necessary registration forms below no later than July 15, 2021 in order to comply with the new Rent Leveling Ordinance. Forms must be returned to the attention of the Rent Regulation Officer in the Department of Community Development.
