About our Commission
The City of New Haven Fair Rent Commission was enacted by the New Haven Board of Alderman in December 1970, Code of General Ordinances Sec 12 ¾-1; amended and adopted December 13, 1984, Chapter 12 ¾ Fair Rent Practices. It was established to control and eliminate excessive rental charges on residential housing within the City.
The primary power of the Fair Rent Commission (known hereafter as Commission) is in determining whether or not the rent for the housing accommodation is so excessive as to be harsh and unconscionable.
