Rent increase guidelines out for 2014


Quebec's rental board has released its rent increase suggestions for 2014.

For apartment where the tenants pay for their heat, the suggested increase is 0.8 per cent.

The suggested increase is 0.6 per cent for those apartments heated by fuel oil, and 1.1 per cent for electricity or gas-heated apartments.

The board says those guidelines don't take into account specific features of each building, and says operating expenses for a building may justify something different from these numbers.

    I don't own a rental property but with increases this low I am happy I don't.
