When we moved into our current property, we gave the landlord first and last month's rent (in lieu of a security deposit). After about a year, the landlord raised our monthly rent. Now, another year or so later, we're moving out, and the landlord is demanding that we augment the last month's rent payment that we originally gave him to reflect the increased rent. Can he do this?

I would contact a landlord/tenant attorney.

Yes. He can do that.
The proper way to do it would have been for him to request that you pay him the increase in last month's rent when he raised your rent.

If you do not have rent control than YES he/she can do this.
