I got a notice on my door today that informed me that my apartment complex’s bookkeepers noticed that my rent had gone up six months ago and nobody ever told me about it. I signed a year’s lease at the time, was never informed that I’d be paying more, and every month since then I’ve been paying the old amount and have been given receipts and nothing was said, every month.
So now they want me to give them $160 for the rent of those six months past. Which is not that big of a deal, I don’t really have a problem paying it, and I will pay it.
I would like to know just for my information when I contact the office tomorrow to talk about it, what the legal deal is. The only information I’ve been able to google is about when you’re told about the increase and it was agreed on. I was never told. I won’t be hiring an attorney for this or anything.
