  • Rent increase during contractual tenancy

    Original AST for 12 months fixed term "After this period the agreement will automatically carry on from month to month as a monthly contractual tenancy until notice to end the tenancy has been given by either party. Notice to end the agreement by either party must be given at least two months in advance and the tenancy must expire on the last day of the month."
    Rent is payable monthly.

    Tenancy is now 30 months old. What is the correct procedure for rent increases? S.13? One or two months notice?
    Assume I know nothing.

    I do not believe that your contract actually makes any sense to be honest. I am not sure that the 2 months notice by Tenant to Landlord is actually enforceable. I would approach as a normal SPT. Section 13 requires the notice to be the same as the contractual periods - as rent is paid monthly, I would suggest it would be monthly.
    [I]The opinions I give are simply my opinions and interpretations of what I have learnt, in numerous years as a property professional, I would not rely upon them without consulting with a paid advisor and providing them with all the relevant facts[I]

      Agree it is a particularly clumsy wording and bears no resemblance to my other contracts! I am minded to disagree that the two months notice period is unenforceable. Is it not that the one month T / two month L notice applies only to an SPT and an SPT only arises where there is no contractual tenancy?

        I am not sure that the wording would satisfy the courts. It is important to remember that any lease must be for a term certain thus to create a contractual tenancy requires quite speicific wording regarding termination etc.

        In any event the requirements of Section 13 do not only relate to SPT thus should suffice in your case. The key element is not the notice required, more the periodic lengths.

          I've lost track of the number of times I've seen on this forum posts like this. Why would you consider going into business with someone who you dont trust due to previous issues? Walk away.

          I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

          I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...

          The ones I have mentioned all explicitly state that they are compliant with Privacy Shield.

          The only popular (used by real people routinely) cloud supplier who claims compliance is Microsoft for Office 365 storage (since 2014).
          None of the other suppliers, as far as I can find out, claim to be compliant - although it's fudged on most of their "help" pages.

          A data storage strategy is important because digital storage media are inherently unreliable and all file formats and physical storage media will ultimately become obsolete.

          Read my comments again... Thank you for your contribution to the thread.



          Privacy Shield has only been mentioned in relation to compliance with current rules.




          As said, I'm sure providers will update their operations to comply with the GDPR,...

          I feel that GDPR is being misunderstood here (which is common).

          Privacy Shield is one tick box (of many) towards GDPR compliance. It allows the "transfer" of data outside of the EU jurisdiction.

          However, it doesnt (for example) address the needs for the Data Controller...

          It currently allows to send data to the US legally. As said, if your provider either keeps the data in the EU or complies with Privacy Shield then there is no problem.

          I have no doubt that storage providers will adapt to the GDPR so as to continue doing business legally in the EU. Landlords...

          I was responding to this point.

          And said


          Many landlords store data on their phones, laptops and PCs.
          They don't have a data strategy in place, they just have documents and files that hold personal data.
          Those are often connected to a cloud service automatically...
