First - Dude i am sorry that you are in this situation and i hope it works out for you.
However, i don't understand this whole "rent control" thing ... i smells of "DA MAN" or the government sticking thier noses in where it doesn't belong. shouldn't an owner be able to charge what they want for rent? Are we not a FREE MARKET society?
Really, how would you like it if you owned a house for a few years, the market value increased - even modestly, and you wanted to sell it at that price BUT the government said NO NO NO you must sell it for $XXXX not $YYYYYY! What about if you want to sell a car?
Sorry, this kind of stuff while it may not be "fair" to the average consumer is how our economy is supposed to work - pricing set at what the market will bear.
