Fair Rent Commission
The Fair Rent Commission is empowered by state and local law to address the rent paid by an individual tenant who files a complaint regarding the amount of rent or rental increase for the apartment occupied by that tenant. After a formal complaint is received the staff does a site inspection and presents a report to the Commission. Poor maintenance, needed repairs, or code violations endangering health and safety are noted. The Commission works in conjunction with the health, fire, and other city departments to promote safe housing. If the staff cannot mediate problems between the landlord and tenant, the Commission holds a public hearing. Repairs may be ordered or rent may be adjusted and/or escrowed until problems are resolved.
The Farmington Community Services office is the site to empower and educate the community on a variety of fair housing initiatives.
