M2M notice increase rent (by Lauren IN [IN]) Posted on: Jun 29, 2022 12:48 AM
Message:

When notifying a M2M tenant of a rent increase, does the court go by the mailing date (I'm assuming I have to give 30-day notice of rent increase by default). I think some states require 30-days plus allow 5 days for the mail (so really 35 days for the postmark; and even then, is it 5 business days?). If so, what if I emailed it? (and does that count as official notice? What about texting?)

I meant to mail the notice out sooner for the August rent increase but it's already the 29th.

Also, the mail can take longer than 5 business days now!

In MA the courts would go by the date that the LL could prove that the tenant received the notice. I imagine it's that way most places otherwise the tenant wouldn't have the opportunity to reject the increase, give their notice of moving & move before the increase goes into effect.

Why not just have it hand delivered either by yourself or a constable? --72.93.xxx.xx

All my leases are month-to-month. When a month's rent is received, I then tell and/or text the tenant next month's rent will be "X" amount.

If they decide to stay, then a new M-T-M lease is signed the next month. Never had a problem doing it this way. --75.107.xxx.xx

I gave one last month and purchased a "proof of mailing" to that address USPS (#3817) on the 26th. Kept a copy of the letter with same date on it in the folder. I didn't hear from the tenant and they paid the increase, as expected. --216.126.xx.xx

Anything like this needs to go cert mail (the green card), without proof of service how can you enforce anything? --76.190.xxx.xxx

That has to be signed for Vee and what if they won't pick it up? That just delays things. It can be delivered in person, attached to door, photographed with a todays newspaper in hand, and they can still say they didn't get it. Somebody must have taken it off the door, etc.

Search your states laws on subject and follow same. I just said the way I do it. It might not hurt to double dip, i.e., e-mail, Facebook message, mail, post in person, but I think that will just create a hostile environment. --216.126.xx.xx

Message:

I just sent out the notices in the regular mail. Nobody whined. I did give more than 30 days notice tho, but only because of when I decided to do it. I then added that even tho they are MTM they will be getting a minimum of a 3% increase annually, rounded up to the nearest dollar.

My only concern is the people that I gave 60+ day notices to. I did that so they were there a year before the increase. I might have to remind them when it gets closer.

If any of my tenants play the didn't get it game I will deal with them accordingly. My increases were pitiful and they are all under market rents and know it.

Oops. Sorry. That's not for rent increases. It's for termination of tenancy --107.141.xx.xxx

I don't know the exact answer to your question but...I would do ALL of the below:

1) Email the information today

2) affix a copy to the door today and take a photo with a date on the photo. (or hand it to the tenant and explain to them and STILL tape a copy to the door and take photo...in case they say you didn't give it to them)

3) Then also send a certified mail copy, and once it's delivered print the tracking info showing it was delivered and staple to your copy. --99.92.xxx.xxx

I use Turbotenant for this purpose. I upload the notice and the system tells me they've opened it. That's the proof I need for anyone. --209.122.xx.xxx
