OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Oakland just made it a bit easier for property owners and renters to resolve rent disputes. The city introduced a new service for its rent adjustment program that allows both sides to file petitions online.
Nearly 70 percent of the city's 100,000 rental units are currently covered under the program. The web-based service compliments the existing paper filing system. The new site also allows property owners to request a larger than normal rent hike.
