different types of residential premises in the province If a landlord imposes a rent higher than the allowable rate, and a tenant or an organized group of tenants objects the landlord will have to justify the rent increase to the rentalsman Until the legislation becomes law and the rentalsman has been appointed the regulations in another piece of legislation will be in effect placing an eight per cent ceiling on rent increases this year retoractive to Jan 1 Attorney General Alex MacDonald told a news conference he hoped the landlord and tenant legislation would be in effect earlier than the six to eight month deadline he had set last month LIMITS INCREASES The bill states that no landlord shall increase the rent during the first yeai of occupancy by a tenant and after that only once
