The amount of rent you pay is determined by your lease agreement. It cannot be raised or lowered arbitrarily just because your landlord doesn't like your friends. That being said, when your current lease agreement is up your landlord could demand higher rent for your next lease agreement (if you intend to renew) absent statutory rent-control provisions to the contrary.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals.
