The monthly rent shall be enhanced up to 10% every year

The monthly rent shall be enhanced by 10% every year

Note : used 'up to' instead of 'by' in above sentence.

Best Answer

I agree with Bill Franke. Your use of enhance is not appropriate. You have several options:

A. The monthly rent will be increased by 10 percent every year (meaning every year the
amount of increase will be 10 percent).

B. The monthly rent will be increased up to 10 percent every year (meaning a given year's increase could be as high as 10 percent, but it may be less than that).

C. The monthly rent shall be increased up to 10 percent every year (meaning an increase of up to 10 percent is mandated, but the increase may be less than that).

D. The monthly rent shall be increased by 10 percent every year (meaning a 10 percent increase is mandated every year).

I assume you are talking about the lease of a property? If so, the use of shall is preferable to will, as in options C and D.
