Thanks for your patience and enquiry. I note your concern with respect To the increased rent. However landlords for housing associations are allowed to increase rent up to 80% of the market rates.
Based on what you have said therefore the landlord would not have acted wrongfully.
All that is required is for the landlord to have given you four weeks notice of their intention to increase rent.
The above being said, if it is you wish to complain, social housing landlords are regulated by the Housing Ombudsman. This means therefore that if you do wish to complain, you may contact the Housing Ombudsman in relation to this issue.
Can I clarify anything for you? I hope I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
You are welcome .
