A Ghanaian man is in disbelief over the amount his landlord has quoted as money to be paid for rent should the pending tenancy agreement expire.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh on TikTok, the young man @kwasiyesu who lives in a rural community in Ghana said his landlord has informed him that he will increase the current rent from 15 cedis to 25 cedis a month which represents more than 60 per cent upward adjustment.
The man said what hurts him the most is that the house is a mud house which needs serious renovation.
“I was even appealing to him to take 20 cedis a month, but he has refused and insist the price is fair”

Landlord demands 2 years rent advance
Earlier YEN.com.gh reported that a landlord in Ghana defended collecting two years' rent in advance from tenants and acknowledge that he is aware of the law but that following it will hurt him.
In an interview, the elderly landlord admitted to receiving two years' advance payments from prospective renters about a year ago, knowing that if discovered, he may go to jail for breaking Ghana's rent law.
However, he claims the legislation is irrelevant after the tenant agrees to pay the two-year advance rent.
