Rent Increase

Many of you may wonder if rent can increase while you are on a lease. The Texas Apartment Association has a great answer.

No, unless your lease has a provision that allows increases during the term. Under the TAA Lease Contract, the rent cannot be increased during the initial lease term unless a "special provision" is inserted or an addendum to that effect is attached. To increase the rent (or any other amount noted on page 1 of the lease) at the end of the initial lease term, the owner must give you the same amount of notice that you are required to give if you plan to move out at the end of the term, plus five days.

    What IF the special provision and what if clauses does not include on the first page about a rent increase due to a Tax credit program? Does this special clause still need to be on the first page of the lease under that special clause or what if area, or can it be on page 2–maybe it’s a continuence on page two of ALL the special what if’s……..

    How much could my landlord increase the rent after my lease expires? I live in an apartment in Bee Cave, Texas.

    • Unfortunately all legal questions should be answered by an attorney. However, my layman opinion is a landlord is able to raise the rent as much or as little as they want since there is no governmental rent control in Texas. Typically rent changes will be based on changes in demand for the apartment.
