Month to Month Lease with rent increase
Asked Aug 8, 2008, 08:48 AM
Hi... what is the law concerning month to month apartment rentals? I have been living at my place for over a year, and my lease expired June '08. Since I have been on a month to month. The past few months, I have been paying my rent late; but it's always been paid in full including the appropriate late fee. Now my landlord says my rent has increased and I have six days to either a) sign a new 7 month lease with a rent of $1300 (I've been paying $1180 with a 10% late fee) and if I don't sign a new lease, I'll have to pay $1400! Can they do this? :mad: I've never received anything either verbally or in writing stating my rent (will/is) increased? And what are my options? Do I have any recourse?
Thanking you in advance!
