Raising Rent / San Jose, CA

I am in the process of purchasing a duplex in San Jose, CA.  How many days notice do I have to give the tenants before I can raise the rents?  The tenants have occupied the unit for over a year.

O'Connor, it depends on whether the tenants are on a month-to-month agreement or a years lease. If on an annual lease agreement, you cannot raise the rent during the lease term, you'd have to wait until that term is up. Assuming they are under a yearly lease agreement, you would have to give at least a 30 days notice.
