NAT126 – (Mba-Rent-Bill)
WINNIPEG. x–15s. The Manitoba government is planning new rules for landlords who want to raise rents. A bill now before the legislature would set down a few conditions for landlords who want to raise rents above the annual provincial guideline, which is tied to inflation. The bill would limit such applications to cases where landlords face a sharp rise in taxes, utilities and security costs, or where they invest in capital projects such as plumbing and heating. Lisa Naylor, the minister for consumer protection, says the move will protect tenants.
