Thanks for your enquiry.
I have studied both Agreements, and note that the rent on the 6month agreement states £240 pcm, whereas the other one says £1,040.00 pcm.
I'm not sure how much rent you are actually paying (the second page to the letter you have received concerning the rent increase is not included as an attachment).
Could you therefore please confirm how much the rent is?
sure, we have been paying 240 pw which makes 1040 pm since we moved in 2 years ago. I must have forgotten to scan in the attachment of the rental increase but as far as I remember the rent increases by app. 10 or 11%
Thanks for your reply, and apologies for the delay in replying.
As the 2 year Tenancy was signed by you and the Landlord, and rent has been paid in accordance with this Agreeement, then this is the binding Tenancy that exists at present.
You are correct that the Landlord does have to give you Notice (2months) to end the Tenancy. Some Landlords are clever in that this Notice is served on you at the beginning of the Tenancy, and this is what your Landlord has done (it is the Section 21 Notice which is on your attachments).
Therefore, legally, your Landlord can ask for the keys back on 22nd April when the Tenancy ends. If they are selling, it may well be that the new owner would prefer you to stay on as Tenant, but you do really need to speak to the Landlord and find out what their intentions are.
I hope this clears up the legal position.
If I have answered your question, I would be grateful if you could leave psitive feedback.
Thanks a lot! So that means that the agreement over 6 months we signed with the Community Trust directly is completely obsolete and does not apply to our tenancy anymore?
