Even in New York, with rent regulation, a landlord can give a preferential rent to a tenant. It is not uncommon for a landlord to give a preferential rent to a relative.
Without a lease, you are generally a month-to-month tenant, and a landlord can raise your rent or terminate your tenancy after giving timely notice, such as 30 days, depending on state or local law.
: I share a small house with a roommate, and his parents own the house. At first this was cool because we caught a great deal, but now they're raising my rent only. I know this is not fair, but is this legal? What can I do? I live in Kelso, Washington, and we have no written lease.
