I thought 30 days seemed reasonable as well. I was very upset when I received a letter stating that as of the following day, my board would go from $300 to $400. There was no reason as to why my board was increasing, and none that I no of.
I think I was just very upset that I was not given any notice, I would be fine with the price change if I had 30 days notice.

a $100 increase in 1 day? That is CRAZY! Can you talk to the BO and find out what is up with this price increase?

Where I used to board, the price was going to increase $25 a month if you didn't get turnout and $50 a month if you did get turnout because they were installing misters. The BO said the misters would be up by the next day, and the price was to increase for the next board payment which was in about a week or so.

One week later, the misters still weren't up, and we were expected to pay more. My mom downright refused to pay more until the misters were up. She payed the old amount, and told them she'd pay the rest when the misters were up. Luckily, our BO was very understanding and we payed the rest about 1 week later when the misters were up. But man, a $100 increase for no reason? I would talk to the BO because that is ridiculous, only giving you a day's notice?!

I would definitely have a big problem with that, and would certainly talk to the BO. Is the barn under new management maybe?

If not, I would find it really hard to believe that she decided in one day to do this. She had to know it was coming. I would also talk to the other boarders and get them to talk to her also-there is power in numbers. Over a 30% increase is ludicrous. I would suggest you all get together and at least get her to spread the increase out over 4 months maybe? ($25/m0 x 4 mo).

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......
