RENT INCREASE GUIDELINE FOR 2021 – The Ontario government has recently, through Royal Assent to a bill essentially freezing rent increases, announced (September 2020) the rent increase guideline for the year 2021 will be 0.0 per cent. The rent increase guideline is the maximum amount by which a landlord can increase the rent of a tenant without seeking the approval of the Landlord and Tenant Board. The 2021 Guideline applies to a rent increase that occurs between January 1 and December 31, 2021. Please note the following which is not frozen.

1. Any Property Tax increases for 2021. These are not “rent”.

2. Above Guideline Increases [AGI’s]. A reminder to residents that that there are currently two of these waiting for hearings. It is possible that these could be approved and become effective in 2021, although there are no hearing dates announced yet. Residents are reminded that, if approved, these increases are retroactive to the dates stated in the notices residents previously received from Parkbridge. There is one type of AGI that is frozen but the two mentioned above are not this type.

3. If a current lease is assigned to a new resident in 2021, the legally allowed $50 per month rent increase is not frozen.
