Our tenants have resided in our property years on a rolling

Customer Question

Our tenants have resided in our property for 7 years on a rolling AST. One increase has been initiated in this period of time and along with current rental values, we wish to increase. How much notice do we have to give them for increase?

Ok.
So when does the latest one end?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It was a one year AST (ending 2010) however never renewed.
Expert:  Remus2004 replied 1 year ago.
It is not an AST then. It is now a periodic tenancy agreement.
If you want to increase the rent all you have to do is give no less than two months notice on or before the rental date.
Your only duty is to give them sufficient notice to put them in a position where they can give notice if they wish to. Two months is perfectly acceptable.
Can I clarify anything for you?
