ANSWERS IN CAPS BELOW.
: My LL wants to raise my rent by $500. Live in a legal 2famil, on monthly basis.
MONTHLY BASIS = 30 DAY NOTICE TO END TENANCY.
:He also requires that I increase my security deposit to equal one months rent.
ONE MONTH DEPOSIT IS STANDARD.
How much time can I legally have before I have to pay the security deposit difference?
HOWEVER MUCH THE LL WANTS TO GIVE YOU.
this may be a little tight to do. Any advice on how to handle LL without getting evicted?
BE FRIENDLY, OFFER TO SIGN A ONE YEAR LEASE.
Can I ask him to start making some improvements to the place in light of this increase? new tiles, paint, etc.
IF YOU WANT TO YES. BUT MAYBE YOU CAN NEGOTIATE DOING YOUR OWN IMPROVEMENTS FOR LOWER RENT.
