When increasing rent, what do investors consider to justify the amount. I read that for NSW the tribunal will consider the following: rents for similar premises in the same or a similar area (‘general market level of rents’) the landlord’s outgoings under the tenancy agreement any fittings, appliances or other goods, services or facilities provided with the premises the state of repair of the premises the accommodation and amenities provided in the premises when the last increase was any work you have done to the premises any other matter it considers relevant. For me the main point is market rent. But if your outgoings have increased so much that you feel you would like to increase it beyond the current market, do you think this is a wise move? Is it worth potentially losing a good tenant?
