How often can a landlord increase the rent?
When you rent a unit for the first time, the landlord decides the amount of rent you will pay and what services (e.g., hydro, parking) are included. Sometimes you can negotiate with the landlord what bills will be included in the rent but this is also often decided by the landlord. The amount of rent is based on current market prices but in Ontario, there are limitations to what a landlord may ask for rent.
