In the rent increase letter, which you can send through regular mail or email, thank your them for being such great tenants.
Compliment them on their good traits, such as paying the rent on time or taking care of the property.
Then, get right to it and say that you need to raise the rent.9 Mar 2015
Is there a limit to how much a landlord can raise your rent?
In most states, landlords are legally required to give tenants at least 30 days notice of a rent increase, although that can vary based on how high it’s hiked. In California, for instance, that advance notice expands to 60 days if the increase amounts to more than 10% of the rent.14 Jul 2016
Can you raise rent on month to month?
Therefore, rent is fixed during the lease term. In month-to-month tenancies, however, landlords can change the rules of tenancy more easily. In fact, the landlord is only required to give tenants 30 days written notice to change a term of the tenancy, including a rent increase (RCW 59.18.140).
Is rent control legal in California?
Under current law, California landlords can raise their rent as much as they like after a rent-controlled tenant leaves. If the Costa-Hawkins law is repealed, cities could write laws that barred them from ever raising their rents to market rates.12 Oct 2018
