Body

WHEREAS, in the matter of Matthew & Jim Lindquist to a Rent Stabilization Determination at 1029 Raymond Avenue, the Legislative Hearing Officer has reviewed the appeal and considered the testimony of City staff and the appellant;

 

WHEREAS, the Legislative Hearing Officer's findings and recommendations are attached to this record; and

 

WHEREAS, the Legislative Hearing Officer recommends the following on the appealed items:

 

1. Appeal to allow exception of 3% rent cap for 2022-2023 lease cycle to increase rent by 15%: Grant. Noting that per the findings and recommendations memorandum, transferring utility costs previously paid by the landlord under the terms of the lease constitutes an increase in rent. These charges are to be included for a total 15% increase, not more.

2. Appeal to allow exception of 3% rent cap for 2023-2024 lease cycle to increase rent from 2-15% per unit, in order to bring rents to an average of $1,300 from their current average of $985: Refer to Legislative Hearing for review and report to City Council with recommendation by March 1, 2023.

3. Appeal to increase rent for Unit 4, from its current $985 per month to something greater than a 15% increase (to $1,133): Deny and allow a 15% increase over current lease to $1,133.

 

Now, Therefore, Be It

 

RESOLVED, that the Saint Paul City Council hereby accepts and adopts the Legislative Hearing Officer's recommendation in this matter.
