Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I will do whatever I can to answer your question.
Unless there is a lease in place or it is subject to rent control, the landlord may raise the rent upon expiration of the tenancy to any amount the market will bear.
Of course, Fair Housing Laws can not be violated. The landlord may not raise the rent based upon race, religion, etc.
Best regards.
