Under what circumstance are landlords not allowed to increase rent?

Published in: July 2017

Generally speaking, for fixed term contracts of less than two years, a landlord cannot increase rent unless 60 days’ written notice has been provided, and that the rental agreement either specifies the increase in rent, or there is an outline of the method for which the increase will be calculated.

In relation to fixed term agreements of two years or more in duration, the 60 days’ written agreement can be applied, and a maximum of one increase is allowable for a 12 month period.
