How to Write a Letter to Tenant to Increase Rent (Sample Notice)

The terms of increase in rent depends upon the mutual understanding between the parties either in writing (condition mentioned in rent agreement) or orally (as agreed from time to time).

It would be advisable for the landlord to at first give a gentle reminder in the form of a formal letter to the tenant - informing him about the increase in rent as agreed upon or as justified to be.

If the tenant do not cooperate properly on the raise in rent matter, then the landlord can write a strong letter to tenant demanding increase in rent.



Here are couple of formats of the letter to be written by the landlord in two scenarios.

FORMAT #1
(in case agreement has condition for increase in rent)

Date: ...............

To

Subj.: Increase of rent from (month)

Hello ......,

Greetings. Hope you are doing well.

I am writing to you regarding the increase of rent for the property rented to you. As per the clause ... of the rent agreement dated ......... , it was mutually agreed that the rent will be increased by 10% in every 11 months.

I am writing to you regarding the increase of rent for the property rented to you with reference to the rent agreement dated ......... between us. You would appreciate a period of 15 months have already passed since your stay in the rented premises, however, I have not raised the amount of rent yet.

I understand you might also be facing the burden of inflation in economy, hence, I have decided not to increase the rent steeply.

Therefore, I am proposing an increase of rent by 5% above current amount. The new rent amount of ........ will be applicable from the month of .......... A new renewal agreement will be entered into from the said month, I will send you across the rent agreement copy once I receive it from my legal advisor.

Have a nice day / evening.
