Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
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.
If the lease will be end on 2/28/2018, can the landlord increase the rent from current $2350/m to $3000/m from 3/1/2018 ?
No. Once a fixed term lease expires, the landlord can increase the rent by any amount that they want to if there is no rent control in place as long as they follow the law.. If they are increasing the rent 10% or under, they have to give a 30 day written notice, if over 10%, which it is here, they have to give a written 60 day notice.
So it requires 60 days if rent increase is more than 10 percent of the lowest amount of rent charged during the last 12 months. See CA Civ. Code §§ 827(b)(2-3))
