I would definitely be saying you agree to the $10 increase but no more. I would say they chose $13 just to see if they could get away with it, given it is 'only three dollars' they may assume you won't argue.

Well put it this way, an extra $3 a week is an extra $156 a year. Surely it will cost them more than $156 to find new tenants, and what if the new tenants turn out to be duds... I wouldn't risk it over $156 if I were them!

If it were me I'd try for the $10, but if they'll only take $13 I'd still take that as it will cost you more than the difference to move house, and it wouldn't be worth the fuss of moving, for me. Maybe they had to increase over the agent's recommendation because of their own financial situation?

Sounds like you live in my place, owners are neighbours, gardens included (done by them and never to standard) except I coped a $20 increase even though we pay $30 more than market value as they wouldn't take us with the dog.
I can't wait to move!

We increased our rent on our rental property and we had to give the tenants 2 months notice, before it came into effect, so even thou the lease was up in May, the increase didn't come in to effect until the end of June because they only signed the new contract at the end of April. Hope this helps.
