Hello Ian my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
What is it you want to achieve please?Alex
Thanks Ian. Had the Landlord signed the contract and just waiting for your signature for the new agreement?
What type of tenancy agreement do you have please?
Have you been paying the new Landlord rent? Have they given you notice to quit or right of appeal the rent increase?
Ok - if you had an AST they cant just put up the rent. They either need to ask you to leave or give you to appeal.
If they did neither then any increase is not valid.
They MUST give you a right to appeal. This is a Section 13 rent increase.
So its not valid.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
They cant enforce the increase and yes you can say you will agree subject to replacements.
That is your key point. It cant be enforced without proper procedure.
Does that clarify? Alex
