Rent may be increased by either a percentage or dollar amount for fixed-term tenancies as indicated in the written tenancy agreement or as indicated in the Term Lease – Two Month Notice of Intention Form available through the ORT’s online portal. This form must be served on the tenants at least two months before the tenancy end date. Tenants have 30 days to accept the new terms in writing or to vacate the property by the tenancy end date.
Landlords who are not members of a prescribed landlord association may serve tenants with a 12-month Notice of Rent Increase available through the ORT’s online portal. The rent increase may not begin within the first 18 months of the tenancy start date, and the rent may only be increased once every 12 months.
Landlords who are members in good standing of either the Network of Non-Profit Housing Providers of Saskatchewan Incorporated (NPHPS) or the Saskatchewan Landlord Association Inc. (SKLA) may serve tenants with a six-month Notice of Rent Increase for Prescribed Landlord Association Members available through the ORT’s online portal. The rent increase may not begin within the first 12 months of the tenancy start date, and it may only be increased once every six months.
Housing program tenancies, where rent is based on a tenant’s income, may be increased by the housing program as a tenant’s income increases.
