Rent Stabilization Act (CB-007-2023) and the Emergency Act Concerning Landlord Retaliation for Rent Stabilization (CB-051-2023)
Earlier this year, the Prince George’s County Council passed a rent stabilization bill (CB-07-2023) and the Emergency Act Concerning Landlord Retaliation for Rent Stabilization (CB-051-2023) that temporarily prevents Prince George's County landlords from increasing a tenant’s existing rent above a certain amount for certain units.

Working Toward a Permanent Rent Stabilization Law
Rent Stabilization Sessions
The Office of the County Executive and the County Council formed a Rent Stabilization Workgroup, made up of various stakeholders that are studying and offering recommendations for a permanent rent stabilization bill. The Workgroup began meeting in July 2023 and will conclude in June 2024. It is jointly convened by the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) and the County Council.
As DHCD and the County Council launched this effort, three virtual sessions were held to inform residents about rent stabilization policies and its impact on both landlords and tenants in communities throughout the country.
If you missed any of these sessions, you can watch them on the links below to gain a better understanding of rent stabilization.
