Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What type of agreement do you have please?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i don t have any kind of contract bc the landlord didn t send me one . In January he said that he will send me the contract but he didn t send me one . So now we said that finally we accept the new rent we hope that he will send us a contract .

What up set us is the attitude of harassment , intimidation , threatening used by the landlord agents .

The land lord wants a new rent he has to send us a letter with his intention not the method what they used .

,, we have someone else to move in you house with the rent of .,.........

,, we are coming to take the propriety ...........

Does the landlord live in too?

No .

Ok, then no, the Landlord can't just increase it. He must serve notice to increase and then give you a right of Appeal to the Rent Tribunal.
The Landlord can NOT increase anything without giving notice and right to appeal. Please see:
