How much can a landlord increase rent?

It’s important to review your rents regularly in order to achieve the highest possible return on your investment. As a rule we review our rents every 6-12 months and we recommend issuing a rent increase at least once every 12 months, even if it is just $5. A Tenant is going to be able to budget much better for smaller regular increases rather than receiving an unexpected large $50pw increase and increasing annually means that once the first increase is done the Tenant will just come to expect an increase around that time every year.
