Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
I'm presuming you are a month to month tenant. As such, any change in the terms of the tenancy is legally deemed to be the termination of the existing month to month tenancy and an offer of a new tenancy on the new terms. As such, in order to implement such a change, such as a rent increase, the tenant must be given written notice of at least 30 days. Then, the tenant has the right to accept that change beginning in 30 days or to terminate the tenancy. The landlord has no legal right to impose a change immediately.
