Charter Realty First
To Raise Rents On
Fall of 1967 Leases
By STEVE WILDSTROM
There were indications yester-
day that there may be some fairly
substantial increases in student
apartment rents next year.
Students seeking living facilities
for Fall, 1967, have reported that
monthly rents for modern four-
man, two-bedroom apartments
close to central campus are run-
ning between $70 and $75 per man.
Comparable apartments cost ap-
proximately $60 to $65 per man
this year for a twelve-month lease.
Students living in buildings
managed by Charter Realty have
received lease renewal notices for
next year and have reported their
rents have been raised from $3 to
$12 per month per man. Repre-
sentatives of Charter were not im-
mediately available for confirma-
tion of the increases or comment
on the causes of the rent hikes.
Apparently, - Charter is the only
major Ann Arbor realtor to have
sent out renewal notices.
Patrick Pulte, of Patrick Pulte,
Inc., a major apartment owner,
Said last night that his firm is
not planning any general increase
in rents. He said that although
there may be some spot adjust-
ments, both upward and down-
ward, no accross-the-board chan-
ges are planned.
Mrs. Elizabeth Leslie, assistant
director of student-community re-
lations, said that she was not
aware of any general increases al-
though she had heard unconfirm
ed rumors of one realtor planning
to raise rents. Mrs. Leslie said any
increases would most likely be the
result of generally rising costs.
A student living in Carriage
House, a Charter managed build-
ing, said that her rent for next
year has been raised from $65
to $74 per month. Another stu-
dent living in a Charter managed
building reported an increase of $3

crease of $13 to $72 per month for

apartments have also said that
Dahlman Apartments and Apart-
ment Ltd renuts are up about $10.
If the increases turn out to be
general, the average cost of a two-
bedroom four-man within two or
three blocks of campus would be
epproximately $280, an increase of
about 11 per cent over this year.
Rents this year are substantially
the same as they were last year
