Rent Increase – Retroactive?
This is a complicated situation – 1) I currently rent a house owned and operated by my employer; however, it is not part of my employment agreement. 2) The written lease agreement is on a month-to-month basis, and entered into as an incident to my employment. 3) The rent for the term of the lease is $412.50/month and is paid through payroll deduction. 4) I was notified on 10/15/02 that a ”scheduled rent increase” became effective 10/1/02, and that this was ”the final scheduled increase over a three year period.” 5) I was never notified of this scheduled increase, nor the previous two increases. 6) This ”schedule” was never a provision of the original agreement.
What, if anything, can I do?
