Q: When can a landlord ask for a "rent increase"?

10:04 AM


  1. Rent increases will only be granted on an annual basis, to coincide with the annual recertification date of the HAP (Housing Assistance Payment) contract. The landlord or owner must request the increase in writing and must submit the request to Bernalillo County Housing at least 60 days prior to the annual recertification date of the HAP. The HAP contract and “Lease” and annual dates should always be the same. There will be no exceptions to the 60 days rent increase notice from the owner requirement. If you submit the request late, you will need to resubmit a new request in a timely manner the following year.This notice can be found on our website.
  2. Once a “Rent Increase Request” is approved or denied, the landlord/owner will be notified.
