Just bought on an investment property in a view of subdividing it. It is not yet settled. Currently tenant is paying $580/week with water included since 2012. After settlement, this is what I will do and potential reaction from tenant. I will increase the rent to market rate $620 Tenant: Ouch! That's an additional $40 per week I will start charging for water usage Tenant: Ouch! That's another $20 per week I will start cut down trees in preparation for subdivision Tenant: Ouch! My enjoyment of shades from trees will be gone and I have to bear the noise of cutting down trees! I will demolish garage in preparation for subdivision Tenant: Ouch! Where am I going to park my car? I will fence off half of the backyard in preparation for subdivision Tenant: Ouch! My enjoyment of backyard will diminish by 50% I will construct a new house at the new lot Tenant: Ouch! I have to bear the noise from construction for 12 months!
