Annual Rent Increase for 2016

Postby CLS » Wed Jul 22, 2015 5:51 pm

The Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing has announced that the 2016 rent increase will be 2.0%. The rent increase guideline is the maximum amount by which a landlord can increase the rent of an existing tenant without seeking the approval of the Landlord and Tenant Board.

The rent increase guideline applies to most private residential units covered by the Residential Tenancies Act. The guideline does not apply to: vacant residential units; residential units first occupied on or after November 1, 1991; social housing units; nursing homes; or commercial property.

The increase applies to rent increases during the period of January 1-December 31, 2016.
