Rent increase conditions

Depending on the location of the rental property you need to give a tenant notice of a rent increase. Cubbi will automatically apply the required notice period when creating the rent increase notice.

Keep in mind for all states the rent cannot be increased during a fixed tenancy unless a condition is included in the agreement allowing for a rent increase of a specific amount or calculation, eg CPI.  In other words you need to wait until after the Fixed Term End date for the rent increase to take effect. (You can still give the actual notice during the fixed term).
