What’s New For 2023

There is no limit on rent increase in New Brunswick for 2023. If the landlord provides the tenant with at least 6 months of proper written notice, they can increase the rent on a residential rental unit to market price.

Rules For Increasing Rent

The landlord must give at least 6 months of written notice of the rent increase before it takes effect and can only increase rent once in a 12-month period.

In most cases, the rent for a residential  unit can be increased 12 months after:

  • The last legal rent increase
  • The start date of tenancy

Rent Increase Notice Guidelines

To be effective, a rent increase notice must include:

  • The name and contact details of the landlord
  • The address of the rental unit
  • The current rent amount
  • The new rent amount proposed
  • The date when the increase will take effect
  • The date and signature of the landlord

Don’t forget, if you do not give proper notice to the tenant before attempting to increase the rent, your tenant can dispute the increase.

Resolving Issues About Rent Increase

In the case where a tenant wants to object to the landlords’ rent increase, they would have to file for a review within 30 business days of receiving the notice to dispute the increase. The tenant has to complete the Application for Assistance to the Residential Tenancies Tribunal and also include a copy of the notice of rent increase received from the landlord.
