    I would suggest you might get away with £50 pcm increase with an explanation that a rent has not gone up for 4 years so there needs to be a significant rent rise. Then £25 cpm each year until you have caught up bit. Seems unfair to evict tenants for you taking you eye off the ball!

    Landlords are actually getting £800 as there is a massive demand in the area as very few properties available for rent, the market has gone crazy, £1200 for a 3 bed semi in Liverpool....

    Hi! I would like to rent out the flat I own on a short-term 2 month basis.

    Is the £800 what they are being advertised for or what LL's are actually getting?

    by Kape65
    Thanks, that sounds hopeful, so I'm guessing their is no way they can just abolish it overnight. I have a property that will not make the proposed C grade so I am going to sell it now because I can see it becoming a major headache when S21 is gone. I was hoping not to issue notice before Christmas if...

    Regarding my leasehold agreement, it says:
