90 Day Rent Increase Notice, delivered late?

A 90-day written notice of rent increase was delivered late. Is this notice legal?

No. The MRL provides for residents to receive the 90-day written notice of a rent increase before the date of the increase. (Civil Code §798.30) Any notice required by the MRL shall either be delivered and received in-person or by U.S. mail, postage prepaid. (Civil Code §798.14) Actual receipt of the notice less than 90 days before the increase is not a 90-day notice.

● A 90-day written advance notice must be received by residents 90 days before increase.
● The notice must be delivered in-person or by U.S. mail.
