questions & answers

Question: I was just delivered a notice that my apt building has been sold and starting 2/1/15 my rent is increasing and I must sign a 12 mos lease. I am currently on month to month can they raise the rent and expect a lease signed in 11 days or must they give notice? If notice must be given is it 30 days?

Answer: https://www.azag.gov/sites/default/files/sites/all/docs/civil-rights/fha/TenantRightsResponsibilities.pdf Proper Notice A. Your landlord can raise rent or decrease services only by giving notice as follows: 1. If you rent month-to-month, your landlord must give written notice at least thirty (30) days prior to the date the rent is due. For example, if your rent is due the first of each month and your landlord gives you notice on March 15 that your rent is going up, that change does not take effect until May 1. 2. If you rent week-to-week, your landlord must give ten (10) days written notice. 3. If you have signed a year-long lease, your landlord cannot raise your rent until the term of the lease has ended.
