We all have a month to month lease and she wants to raise rent again starting November 1st after she already raised it once and then kick us out before the beginning of the year.
A: A month to month tenancy can be terminated by either landlord or tenant by giving 30 days' written notice. If a tenant does not leave, then landlord can file an eviction. If a landlord sends notice of a rent increase, and tenant does not agree, then tenant or landlord can give the 30 days notice. Ask your local housing agency or tenant assistance agency if there are any local limits or restrictions on the maximum rent increase or how often rent can be increased.
