They can’t do that. That would be considered an unfair rent increase, exceeding the limits set by the rent control board. Even if they raised the rent to $2 dollars, it would exceed the Max allowed rent increase.
Sorry Philadelphia, but you have to follow your own rules too, no matter how badly the fags running the city want to try extortion on the boy scouts.
The scouts should take the city to court anyways for attempting this illegal extortion.
Rent control in Philly, like other jurisdictions, only applies to residential leases.
Rent control boards only control residential rents. It would not apply here.
