Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
Do you have a lease or do you rent month to month?
Thank you. Please allow me a moment to respond.
Yes, a landlord does have a legal right to raise and increase the rent for a tenant. Since you do not have a lease in place, locking the rental amount in for a year, then landlord can increase and raise the rent, by giving you the proper written notice. Even though you have been there for 30 years, they can increase the rent as long as they follow the proper procedures.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
