State Rep. Greg Rothman (R-District 87, Cumberland County) has introduced a measure in the Pennsylvania State House that would prevent Philadelphia City Council from imposing rent control.
Members of Philadelphia City Council are pushing for a rent control ordinance which essentially will limit the amount of rent that you can charge a tenant in the city. Having the City tell rental property owners the maximum they can charge for rent will be devastating to your business. Hapco Philadelphia, along with our real estate partners, has been working to get the state to preempt, or prevent the City from being allowed to pass such an ordinance. This week, Representative Rothman introduced the following bill that will do just that.
