Occasionally, a landlord and tenant may disagree on the amount of rent and/or rental charges. If the parties are unable to reach an amicable agreement, a landlord may send a request to the Rent Committee for a rent increase. Tenants, for their part, may apply to the Rent Committee for a rent reduction.
The Rent Committee meets to decide on the applications made by landlords and tenants.
In its role as arbitrator, the Rent Committee provides a framework for settling disputes amicably. It has proven to be very effective in this respect, as a large number of disputes have been resolved by settlement instead of going to court.
This procedure is open to all tenants and owners of residential property.
