I don't feel like looking up the specific law but it wont be much of an increase at all. Under $50 for sure.

You should've received something in the mail. You can look it up on the Santa Monica Rent Control Board (or whatever it's called) website. IIRC it's around a 1.5-2% increase.

Hmm...$10 seems a little low, though $150 a bit high -- I'm going to go with $30, Drew.

I think it can go up 2-4% of your total "base" rent - if your rent includes utilities, then what you pay is a bit higher than the base.

I can't speak for Santa Monica, but in L.A. the maximum increase for covered apartments is set each year by some city board or other. I don't know what all the factors are but inflation seems to play a major role; in times of high inflation, the rent can be raised more than in other years. I would imagine Santa Monica is similar.

Check out the City of Santa Monica's website for an explanation of how rent control works there. You can probably find a list of the increases that were allowed over the past ten or twenty years which would at least give you a ballpark number.
