    Tips for renting in New Haven, CT

    Moving to New Haven? It’s a great place to call home. Here are a few of the renters rights you'll have. A landlord has the right to increase the rent without prior notice, as long as the lease period has ended. However, the increase must be in line with the fair market value of the apartment.

    This means that if a tenant believes the fair market value is lower than the landlord’s increase in rent, they can pay the lesser amount and not be evicted.

    While oral agreements are honored, it's always best to get things in writing. And make sure to read your lease in its entirety before signing.
