How to Raise the Rent for California Landlord / Tenant Agreement

California landlords may raise the rent on a month-to-month agreement only after giving proper notice to the tenant.

For rent increases of no more than 10%, at least 30 days’ notice must be given.  If the rent increase will be more than 10%, 60 days’ notice is required to be given to the California tenant.

If the notice is served by mail, rather than be posting on the door, then the 30/60 day notice period is extended by an additional 5 days if sent to a California address, or 10 days if sent to a different state, or 20 days if sent to a different country.
