    Default Increase Of Rent During A One-Year Rent Agreement

    Hi I live in Philadelphia PA. I have a lease for 1 year on $710/mo rent witch I signed with previous owner. (This is a condo appartment). Lease will end on 2/28/2008. This month my new landlord changed air conditioning-heating unit (this is heated and air conditioner in 1 unit). He wants to increase my rent by $50. Can he increase my rent during 1 year lease agreement?
    If he can, under what sircumstances he can do it?
    Thanks

    What does the written lease agreement say about rent amounts and rent increases?

    Lease agreement says nothing about rent increase. It has amount of rent only.

    Without having read the lease I can't interpret its language, but from what you say you have a fixed amount of rent until the end of the lease.
