    You need to send him a section 13 notice to increase the rent and, yes you need to give him the correct notice again, however you could increase the rent a bit more from what was previously written to make up for the loss.


      thanks, think I will, as it will be two months after we intended


        FTT does not have to approve full/any increase if T refers s13 to them.
        Whatever amount is awarded is fixed for 12 months.


          If I were your tenant and you serve a s13 notice specifying an amount that's higher than you had stated only couple of months ago, it's definitely being referred to tribunal.
          I am not a lawyer, nor am I licensed to provide any regulated advice. None of my posts should be treated as legal or financial advice.


            LL can propose any rent on s13. It is for T/ FTT to decide if increase is reasonable.
            1% or 10% pa?

              The original amount in the letter was not legally binding hence the need for a section 13 notice which is legal. The LL can put whatever he likes down on the section 13, if it is below or equal to market rent then a tribunal wont change that.

                Thankyou for reading my post I hope someone is able to assist. I live in a council flat, I moved here 5 months ago. When I applied for the flat my husband and I were estranged and I applied for it in my own right only - by the time I took possession of the flat we had reconciled, the council would...

                As Andrew says. Then change locks. Police if he does anything silly.

                Better luck with next partner!

                I live quite near to my flats and have had some problems with criminal tenants so I am considering withholding my personal address from new tenants. Of course they have my phone number and email address for speedy communication with me. I am thinking of subscribing to a PO type address on the tenancy...

                It would be easier not to select criminal tenants.

                These days with t'InterNet, social media it's easy to find people anyway. Plus Land registry deeds for £3.

                Don't be shy!

                I am about to serve a section 21 so we can sell and I am paranoid about getting the dates correct. can anyone confirm which date I should use?? The circumstances are:

                6 months short term tenancy began on 28/09/17
                on 28/03/2018 it is going onto a periodic tenancy...

                At least 2 months from the deemed date of service. So if your tenancy agreement say notice is considered served say 2 business days after you post the notice to the tenant first class, and you're going to be posting the notice to your tenant, then it's two months + 2 business days from you posting the...

                (Assuming you're talking about a tenancy in England & Wales)

                You are required to notify your tenant of an address within England and Wales at which notices may be served on you by the tenant, or no rent is legally due. A PO Box is fine for such a purpose. However....

                What follows is my analysis of the position. It should not be treated as gospel.

                Part 1

                It is often asserted that a landlord, even if the tenant has agreed to it in the tenancy agreement or lease, may not enter premises without the consent of the tenant. Whilst on the whole...

                My tenant stopped paying the rent and stopped communicating with me. I started the court and eviction process. During that time the gas registration certificate was due to expire so I contacted the tenant by text, email and WhatsApp and gave him a week's notice of the gas engineer's visit which was...
