RE: Rent increase notice at _____________________________________.
Name of landlord
I am writing to inform you of my intentions based on the law regarding rent
increase notices. Pursuant to VSA Title 9, Chapter 137, Section 4455(b) of the Vermont
state statutes, a landlord may increase rent “on the first day of the rental period following
no less than 60 days actual notice to the tenant.”
You provided me with notice of an increase on ___________________.
Therefore, the increase should not legally take effect until________________________,
the date my next rent payment is due after “no less than 60 days actual notice” and I will
not begin paying the increased rent until this date.
I thank you in advance for recognizing my legal rights in this matter.
