If the premises is subject to the Anti-Eviction Act, rent increases have to be reasonable. Whether that applies to your particular case can be determined by the court. Protesting a rent increase on the basis of the amount of the increase can involve risks. If you want to make an issue of it and want some help, give me a call.
