Do you know when your landlord may raise your rent?

If you have a written rental agreement for a definite term (like 6 months or a year), your landlord cannot increase your rent until after your lease term is up. The exception is when you and the landlord both agree on a rent increase during the lease term. If you rent month-to-month, the landlord must give you advance written notice of a rent increase at least 30 days before your rent increases. If you rent week-to-week, the landlord must give you advance written notice of a rent increase at least 7 days before your rent increases.
