How often can my landlord raise my rent?

3. Check if you got 90 days’ notice

Look at the date the landlord gave you the and the date the rent increase is supposed to begin. If the date of the rent increase is less than 90 days after the day the landlord gave you the notice, then the increase is probably not legal and you don't have to pay it.

To count correctly, count the day after the landlord gave you the notice as day 1, and then count to 90.

If your landlord sent you the notice in the mail, the law assumes your landlord gave it to you on the 5th day after it was mailed, regardless of when you actually received it. So count the 6th day after mailing as day 1, and then count to 90. The postmark on the envelope shows the latest date it could have been mailed.
