55-2006.  Adjustments to rent, services, utilities or rules. (1) A landlord may increase or decrease rents after expiration of the lease term, but only with ninety (90) days’ written notice to the residents. Such written notice shall be sent by first class mail, certified mail or personal delivery.
(2)  Rental increases shall be uniform throughout the community. When rents within a community are structured by reason of lot or home size, amenities, lot location or otherwise, rental increases shall be uniform among all homes in the same rent tier.
(3)  A landlord shall give written notice of such change to each affected home owner at least ninety (90) days prior to any amendment to the rental agreement. The landlord may not amend the rental agreement or rules more frequently than once in a six (6) month period.
(4)  Rents in communities are governed by the provisions of subsection (2) of section 55-307, Idaho Code, which provides that a local governmental unit shall not enact, maintain, or enforce an ordinance or resolution that would have the effect of controlling the amount of rent charged for leasing private residential property.
(5)  Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, a rental agreement may include an escalation clause for a pro rata share of any increase or decrease in the community’s ad valorem taxes, utility assessments, or other services as included in the monthly rental charge, after the effective date of such a change. Issues of public safety, health or property degradation may also be included in this section. The landlord shall give thirty (30) days’ written notice to a resident before such an increase or decrease.
