The Vacancy Unit Registration Form is Now Available Online! Until now, the Rent Control Board has required owners to register new tenancies on a 3-part multicolored form that was only available from our office. Now, a single-page form can simply be downloaded for this purpose. Much of the form can be filled out online using your keyboard, but since the Rent Control Law requires a statement signed under penalty of perjury, owners must print out and sign the completed form and then mail it or bring it to Rent Control. Traditional, 3-part forms are still available for those who want them, but to get one right away, use this link to download the Vacancy Unit Registration Form from the following page.
