Requesting a Rent Increase
Things to consider before submitting a rent increase request:
- Rent increase amount cannot exceed the current payment standard for the unit size and submarket
- A market rent comparable study will determine the final rent amount
To start the rental increase review, first serve the tenant with a 60-day notice of the change. Then, no later than 10 business days from the issue date, provide HACSB with a copy of the notice via mail, fax or email email@example.com) for review.
Finally, if the rent increase is approved, the Housing Authority will provide a notice of change to tenant and housing authority rent portions.
