1. Figure out which type of agreement it is

Check if you will get something that is on this list if you agree to the rent increase:

  • cable television
  • satellite television
  • air conditioner
  • extra electricity for an air conditioner
  • extra electricity for a washer or dryer in the rental unit
  • blockheater plug-ins
  • lockers or other storage space
  • heat
  • electricity
  • water or sewage services, excluding capital work
  • floor space
  • property taxes for a site for a mobile home or a land lease home
  • parking space

All these items, except parking space, are on a list that the government can change any time.
