When your lease expires, yes they can.

You need to check the beginning and ending dates of your lease. If your lease has not yet expired, then you are still covered by the lease, they cannot raise your rent and you agree to keep the other terms of the lease.

Once your lease has expired, anything can happen. They can offer you a new lease, raise the rent, you can decide to move out, or you can remain there as a "month to month" tenant (without any lease).

: I have lived in this Appt from 1997 to the present date (North Hills CA). And I have this packet of info (Renter's Rights)that states that the landlord can only increase the rent "If you have a lease your landlord can not raise your rent unless there is a provision for this in the lease agreement. (Sec.827 of CC)" If this is the case there is no provision for this in my lease agreement.
: Please if someone knows a litttle bit more about this matter. Please do send it. It would be greatly appreciated.
: Sincerly,
