Raising rent to market value

If a tenant has been paying less for than market rent and less even than rent stipulated in contract due to some elderly landlord confusion. And this was just discovered, is it possible to to bring rent in line with other units in the quarter?

Thanks in advance!

That's not your problem

This is, you'll have to pay what the contract says and back pay the missing money

At the next contractually possible termination date and with proper notice and cantonally approved form, sure, they can try and you can contest it. The landlord bears the burden of proof what constitutes a market rent in this case and rent paid by other units if they are owned by same landlord is not eligible to be considered, he has to find and name some other examples

For up to five years I would think, counted back from when the debt was invoiced for. Older debt has lapsed.
