Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: Can my landlord change how much I pay rent 3 months after I signed an agreement for a lower amount

Answer: It depends on the term of your original agreement. Look back to your lease to see whether the term of your lease was for 1 year, 6 months, or month-to-month. Depending on the length of the lease and the terms that you agreed to when you signed the lease, your landlord may be able to increase the rent. If you need assistance with reading and understanding your lease, you may want to contact your nearest legal services provider or the modest means project and request attorney assistance.
