## Rent Increase Definition

A rent increase is defined as a percentage increase in rent over a certain time period, most often a year.

## How to calculate a rent increase?

First, you need to determine your initial rent cost from the previous year. Depending on what you analyze you can include utilities and other bills in this cost if you want to look at the increase from a total cost of living perspective. Next determine the current cost of rent using the same factors. Finally, enter the values into the formula above to calculate the increase.
