How often the Rent may be Increased

< Back to list

This depends on the type of tenancy agreement you have – see the table below.

A fixed-term agreement is for a specified period (e.g. 6 months). A periodic agreement is one where the fixed term has expired or no fixed term is specified.  


Fixed-term agreements of 2 years or less
The landlord/agent cannot increase the rent if you have a fixed-term tenancy agreement of 2 years or less – unless your agreement sets out the amount of the increase or the method of calculating it.
