  • I have lived in the current house for 3 1/2 years. First 2 years we signed a lease. When it came time to sign a 3rd one the landlord said after 2 she doesn't require any more and we would just go month to month. We're have never been late. 6 months ago she raised our rent $125 to $1350. Now today she sent a text saying rental rates have gone up and starting next month she is raising it by $600 up to $1950. Nothing is that high in the area. I am a long haul truck driver. Only home 3 days a month. Don't know how I am going to be able to find a place, pack, and move in 3 days. Is this legal?
