Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

Can you tell me what state this is in?.

.

Are you under a fixed term written lease or are you month to month?

.

And I assume your question is if this is legal?

.

Has the landlord given you any written notice of a rent increase?

.

.

thanks

Barrister
