June 22, 2023, 10:00 - 11:30 AM
Deposits, Rent Increases and Fees
For most BC tenants, money is tight and every dollar matters. Can a tenant be charged a deposit for having a pet? Can a landlord charge a fee for late payment of rent? What’s the allowable rent increase percentage for this year and next year? This webinar will educate you on the rules regarding deposits, rent increases and fees, to ensure that you’re not paying your landlord any more money than you need to
