I have an assured shorthold tenancy agreement with my landlord. I have been a resident at the property for 10 years paying a rent of £595.00. It was originally in the joint names of me and my husband but in November 2012 it was written with me in my sole name. On 2 April I received a letter from Jacobs Steel , who say that they are taking over the management and my new rent would be £750 from 13 May 2013.
It was dated, in my sole name, commencing 21/11/12 for six months. nothing renewal received since this. So I assume you mean 21 may 2013.
thank you for your help. As you say, not the answer I hoped for I still think an increase of £150 is unacceptable at such short notice, I will try and negotiate a lesser amount as the £150 will put me in real hardship. It seems that the landlord is protected more than the tenant! What's new!
