you are entitled to a new carpet or flooring of some kind. and yes, it may be in your lease agreement that upgrades will affect the rent, unless you are lucky enough to be in a rent controlled place.

Do you have a lease? That could negate any increases unless they were agreed to at signing. Did you approach him about the looks of it? Perhaps he's not aware that it's so bad as he wouldn't have seen it in some time. Also, worn carpet can tear, causing a person to trip and fall, so I would doubt that anybody wants to leave themselves open for a lawsuit ....... Try talking to your landlord first.

I'm not familiar with Canadian law, but I would assume that if the contract states that the landlord retains the right to raise the properties' rent with advanced notice, they can do so. However, it is likely within a certain $ limit that they can raise the rent as an excessive increase would constitute a material change in the contract and a judge may consider the leasor to be acting in bad faith. Also, replacing the carpet may be the landlord's responsibility to bear the cost. In the US, landlords are obligated to provide hospitable premises to the leasee. For example, in the case of mold, its a health risk and a landlord's responsibility to provide a habitable premise for the leasee and thus, mold removal & carpet replacement would be the responsibility of the landlord.
