The Law and You for July 2, 2013
Q. My landlord just doubled my rent. Do I have any rights as a tenant?

A. You actually have many rights as a tenant that you can use to help you out against your landlord. First and foremost, you need to look at your lease as that is going to spell out what most of your rights are. If the lease has no provision about your landlord doubling your rent then your landlord has no legal right to do so. However, if the lease does give the landlord the right to double the rent under certain circumstances then you need to make sure that those circumstances are present. At the end of the day, if you just aren't sure then you need to talk with an attorney who specializes in landlord/tenant to see what additional rights you may have.
