Tenant Responses may be filed either by downloading and filling out the respective paper form (see above) or by filing online through the RAP online petition and response system (portal).
Note: You cannot file an online response to a petition through the portal unless you have access to either the RAP case number or the electronic petition number (which only exists if the petitioner filed their petition through the online system).
All other responses should be submitted on paper via mail to the Rent Adjustment Program Office at 250 Frank Ogawa Plaza Ste. 5313 Oakland, CA 94612; or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All responses must be received in the Rent Adjustment Program office on the 30th calendar day from the date of the proof of service for the petition if the petition was served in person; and the 35th calendar day from the date of the proof of service for petitions that were served by mail.
