What is rent control?
Rent control is a set of local laws that keeps housing affordable and puts a set of protections in place to protect renters such as rental price limits, eviction protection, maintenance standards and a system of enforcement. Rent control is a positive notion for the real estate market, as it allows renters to save money to purchase a home instead of being cost-burdened by renting. Currently, Saint Paul does not have rent control in place.
