Rent Control On The Ballot In St. Paul

While Minneapolis voters will be deciding about the future of who gets to pass rent control measures this November, residents in St. Paul will be voting on an actual rent control proposal. The measure would ban landlords from increasing rent more than 3% per year on all units throughout the city. They also would not be allowed to increase rents to market-rate once tenants move out.

Landlords could request an exemption in some instances, such as if property taxes increase or if significant improvements are required to bring the unit into compliance with city code.

If the ordinance passes this November, the measure would go into effect May 1st, 2022.
