So you move in into an apartment, the landlord says they will do things, they don't so you do. It's now a nicer place because of the work you put in, so the landlord asks for a big rent increase. Guess what you lose in Nova Scotia. If you are the renter you lose by default because the government decided in 1993 to abolish the Rent Review Commission in Nova Scotia. Your landlord can increase your rent to ANY amount by law. Your only right is the right to move out, but only if you've given proper notice. The problem is there probably aren't many renters in government, but I bet there are some landlords.
