Rent Control is a state subject, with slight difference in each state. Generally rent should be increased by 8-10% annually as agreed between landlord and tenant, however, there is no scientific formula. If the tenant is neither increasing rent nor vacating the demised premises, issue legal notice for (reasonable/market) increase of rent with effect from today. It would be better to consult a local prudent lawyer for appreciation of facts, guidance and proceeding .
