Hi. Sorry for the delay in replying. It doesn't mention assured shorthand tenancy anywhere on the contract.
Ok - when did they start and how long as it for?
It's a 'Lease Agreement' for 3 years and 1 day from 26th October 2010.
OK - then it sounds like an assured shorthold tenancy agreement.
You therefore need to write to the tenant with the proposed increase.
This is called a Section 10 notice.
There are lots of templates for these online.
If the tenant wishes to dispute the increase he can take it to the Rent Valuation Tribunal
For details on that see;
But if the tenant does not appeal then you can implement the increase.
It is as easy as that!
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Nope, thats perfect. Thank you!
Im so sorry to ask again... I've been googling section 10 template and I can only find things on data protection...? I've come across this form though... http://www.landlords.org.uk/nla-form/notice-increase-rent-england-section-13-form-4b ... would this be suitable...?
