Does Summit have Rent Control?
Summit does not have rent control. However, the City of Summit has a Rent Commission which is comprised of volunteers. If you have an issue with your security deposit, or if a rent increase is considered “unconscionable” you may file a complaint with the Rent Commission by calling the Clerk's office at 908-273-6400.
