    Did L protect T's deposit (and provide the prescribed information) before serving Notice under s.21?

    If the s21 is worded correctly and your landlord has protected the deposit and given you information about which scheme is holding it there's little you can do unfortunately.

    To get an idea if the new rent is reasonable have a look at local estate agents to see what similar properties are going for. You should then discount that price by a fair amount (at least 10%) to account for the extra fees the landlord would have to pay when a new tenant moves in. You may want to take off a bit more depending on how active your local rental market is, to accommodate the risk the landlord may face when trying to get a new tenant in to pay the rent.

    Once you've worked out a price your starting offer should then be pitched lower, as with any negotiation.

    This is one of the two ways that your landlord can increase the rent. If you are prepared to accept the increase then sign the new AST and pay the increased rent. Your occupation of te premises can then continue uninterrupted. If you aren't happy, discuss same with landlord and if a compromise is not possible then prepare to move out. At least you do not have a greedy letting agent demanding a fee of something like £100 as well to renew the tenancy!

    P.P.

    Got to love the landlord's negotiation skills, though

    Notice & New contract in one???

    Any advice would be appreciated...

    My landlord has served me notice (section 21) in line with my rental dates, all correct I believe. In the same envelope he has also offered me a new contract at an increased rent. Doesn't this invalidate the section 21?
