Canvass with the Rent Control Coalition!

Join us during July and August to talk to our neighbors about expanding Good Cause Legislation. Good Cause protections only cover month-to-month leases in Philadelphia, leaving the vast majority of our neighbors without common sense protections against gentrification, house-flipping, and slumlord tactics.

No Eviction without Good Cause!

Because rent control often includes some form of vacancy decontrol, it is largely meaningless unless tenants are protected from eviction at the expiry of their leases. If landlords can decline to renew a tenant’s lease and raise the rent once the unit is vacated, rent control would simply increase the prevalence of evictions with little to no impact on affordability. As a result, it is crucial that any rent control legislation incorporate full Good Cause protection rights for all rental units covered by the policy.
