Sample Rent Increase Letter

Looking for a free rent increase letter template that you can rely on? Raise your rent with ease using our sample rent increase notice here.

Before you ask for more rent, the first step is to make sure that you are allowed to raise the rent:

If you have a month or month lease or verbal lease - You're allowed to increase the rent by filling up our form below and delivering it to your tenants in advance. Depending on your local landlord tenant laws, you're required to give them this notice 30 to 60 days in advance.

If you have a fixed term lease - You cannot use our notice of rent increase to ask for more rent... unless your lease period is over or your lease agreement has a clause that allows you to review the rent periodically.

Before you raise the rent, we highly recommend that you read our expert guide on how much rent to charge for a house.

The reason for rent increase is optional (you can delete that field) but it is recommended to give tenants a reason to avoid any discontent issues.

*While we make every effort to ensure that our forms are helpful, you must edit them according to your personal needs and local landlord tenant laws. Always seek legal advice when in doubt.
