Is requiring landlords to give tenants more notice of rent increases a form of “rent control”?
Yes, argued Nick Norman, a lobbyist with the Apartment Association of New Hampshire who strongly opposed House Bill 1237 at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday.
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Casey Conley, D-Dover, whose proposed amendment to his own bill would require a 90-day notice for rent increases over 5% and a six-month notice of increases of more than 8%. The amendment dropped requirements for such notifications before a sale.
