Suppose you are a landlord who has decided to raise the rent on your residential rental property: you will need to officially inform the tenant(s) of this change by sending them a Notice of Rent Increase letter. 

 

Using a Notice of Rent Increase letter not only keeps you compliant with any possible legal requirements, but it also creates a paper trail for you. Having all the correct documentation may be necessary if you are forced to seek further legal action.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

A notice of rent increase is a legal document/letter from a landlord that notifies the tenant of a planned change in the amount of rent required for the lease. 

 

 

 

If you are a landlord who wants to increase a periodic tenant’s rent, you must comply with your jurisdiction’s notice requirements to avoid any negative legal consequences. 

 

 

 

Periodic tenancy is one that automatically renews until one of the parties cancels the arrangement. The majority of periodic tenancies run from month-to-month, but the term can exist for a longer or shorter period of time. 

This type of notice is not designed for use regarding fixed-term leases. Without a mutual agreement, the landlord cannot raise the tenant’s rent in the middle of the fixed term.

However, since fixed-term leases don’t automatically renew, an increase in the rent will be an aspect included in the renegotiation of the lease.

 

 

Generally, you will deliver a notice of rent increase either by mail - first class, registered, or certified - hand delivery, or door affixation. You should still check your state’s tenant laws to ensure compliance. 

 

 

 

You do not need to file the rent increase notice in court; however, you should retain a copy of the notice for your records in the event you need to show proof before a judge.

While a rent increase notice does not have to be notarized, it must be signed by both the landlord and whoever delivers the notice to the tenant (if applicable). 

 

Please Note: The use of a notary ensures that no one challenges any signatures later and is a secure way to firmly establish the effectiveness of your document.
