A Notice of Rent Increase is a letter used by the lessor (the person renting out the property) to inform the lessee (the person renting the property from the lessor) that the rent will increase. By using a written notice, the change in rent is properly documented which may prevent misunderstandings, miscommunication, and future disputed over the rent amount.

An increase in rent usually happens when the original lease period has ended and the lessee will renew the lease. In this case, the original lease has ended and the lessor may determine if there will be an increase in rent. However, the lessor should check the lease agreement as some lease agreements may contain a provision which sets a limit as to how much the rent may increase should the lessor and lessee agree to renew the lease.

This document may be used for both residential and commercial leases.

Other documents pertaining to leases that are available include:

- Residential Lease Agreement

- Commercial Lease Agreement

- Residential Sublease Agreement

- Lease Amendment Agreement

- Landlord's Consent to Sublease

- Letter of Intent to Renew Lease

- Maintenance Request Letter

- Renter's Letter to End Lease

- Notice of Lease Violation

- Late Rent Notice

How to use this document

Before filling up this document, the lessor should first check the lease agreement if there are any provisions for rent increases and, if there are any, consider these provisions when filling this document.

The user should input all the information necessary to complete the document. This includes the lessor and lessee's names and addresses, the address of the leased property as well as the current and new rent. The user could also include the reason for the rent increase if they wanted.

Once the document is completed, the lessor should review the same and, if all the information is correct, sign it. This document can be sent by personal delivery or by registered mail. If the letter will be sent by personal delivery, the lessor should have an extra copy available for the lessee to sign when they receive the letter. This copy should be kept by the lessor as proof of receipt.

If the lessee refuses to pay the increase, then the lease agreement should be consulted for the consequences of said refusal.

Applicable law

The laws on contracts and obligations and the laws on lease found in the Civil Code of the Philippines may be applicable to rent increases. Additionally, Republic Act No. 9653 (the "Rent Control Act") as extended by the National Human Settlements Board Resolution No. 2021-02, governs lease contracts that fall under the following conditions:

1. The property is located in the National Capital Region or highly urbanized cities and the total monthly rent ranges from One Peso (P1.00) to Ten Thousand Pesos (P10,000.00)
2. The property is located in other areas and the monthly rent ranges from One Peso (P1.00) to Five Thousand Pesos (P5,000.00).
