On a month to month lease, how much notice should a tenant be given for rent increase or notice to move out?

Fort Collins, CO |

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.

I agree with the answer above though in the lease there may be a provision that indicates if the terms are any different when the lease becomes month to month. It is likely that 30 day notice is all that is required
