I have been renting in the same house for 2 years, first year under a lease and now I am month to month. The landlord told me may 1st they are increasing rent from 1400 to 1600 (14%) starting June 1st. We have one week to sign a year contract with the new rate or move out June 1st. Do I have any laws in my favor?
No. You were given 30 days notice which is longer than necessary on a month to month lease.
