(NEA Tclcpliolo.) 1GIAL 5 Tie Regular 98c Rent Controls Stiil in Force on Rooming Houses Sleeping rooms in roominK and boarding houses are still iniiV.M- rent control, Area Rent Director Cunnlnghnm said today in ansiv.'r to' many questions asked since the new Housing ami Rent Act Ueca;nc effective on July 1, , Roomers in rooming houses provided with the some proU'v-lions under rent controls lhat apply '.' nil other tenants living in rent-controlled accommodations, the area rent director said. Tliis mc^ns thai maxhn:nn rc'Vs for such rooms remain Just \vher? they were on Jure 30, 10-17. It also means that they rre afforded the sair.c definite prolcc- ;ions against urJawfui eviction.^ as Lhe law juo'.'irtrb for other V:\'- inls. This means, too, that n landlorn iirt n roomer may, if they wish, enter into a written lease incrcii?- ins; (he maslmum rent up to, but nnT, more than, 15 per cent, provided the lease meets all recprirj- :nenls of the new aet. including the requirements that the signing must be voluntary and the lease must permit the "tenant, to keep possession of the room, at the agreed on rental, nnlil the end of next year, 1948. The number of questions reaching his office about tourist homes, Mr. Cunningham said, indicates a KOOI! deal of misimderstanmnB- The important thing to remember in tha connection, he pointed out. is tha the new act decontrols tourist home? serving transient guests exclusively but keeps controls on rooms which are rented under conditions common to rooming houses. All accommodations in motor courts. Mr. Cunningham said, arc decontrolled. The rent director called particular attention t» the fart that operators of motor fouiis and ot utirist homes serving transient uesls exclusively must file applications for decontrol with the area rent office.
