Nova Scotia Landlords Can Raise the Rent 1.5% in 2016 for a Land Lease Community

Successful and experienced Nova Scotia landlords know how important it is to rent out well-maintained properties. If you have a nice and safe rental property you will attract more good tenants and avoid the “pro tenants” out there who can destroy your rental and end up costing you thousands of dollars in lost rent and damages.
