APPENDIX U:
The Rent Guidelines Board Rent Index

The RGB Rent Index estimates the overall effect of the Board's annual rent increases and vacancy increases on stabilized contract rents each guideline year (October 1 to September 30). The RGB Rent Index includes the percentage increases for one- and two-year leases, the estimated increase for vacancy leases and increases, if applicable, due to the low rent supplement or the minimum rent. Rents can increase due to other factors not included in the RGB Rent Index, e.g., increases for Major Capital Improvements or Iindividual Apartment Improvements.
