About my rental agreement contract a month to month, an on- sit management is raising the rent and not stating a reason why. I was on a five-year contract as of this day I am on a month-to-month contract I was wondering if I still have to comply with the rules of the last contract that was signed?
Thank you for your time I really appreciate it you taking the time to answer my question
If you are a month to month tenant, the landlord can raise the rent each month with notice. It may be better to enter into an one year lease to avoid monthly rent increases.
You are bound by all of the terms of the original lease but the landlord can raise the rent every month as long as it gives the required notice. Think about it. You are leasing for a month at a time (month-to-month). So there can be a new rental rate every month.
