Can I increase my rent before the end of its tenancy.
This would be the first increase in 18months and the tenancy was renewed six months ago, with six months before the end of this contract?

Thank for getting back to me . Yes it is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy.


Hi JB,

Thanks for your reply.

I'm afraid that as it is an AST, you are NOT entitled to increase the rent during the fixed term of the Tenancy agreement, full stop.

Sorry this may not be the answer you were looking for.

Kind Regards
