AST into Contractual Periodic Tenancy

The initial term of the AST ends on 28th Feb '23. We plan to let it roll into a CPT. When do we notify the tenants of the intention to increase the rent? Are we too late to increase the rent for March '23?
From other posts I’ve gleaned a friendly email proposing the increase and their subsequent payment of the increase are sufficient, is that right?
Many thanks.

In my experience, the friendly email approach has always been best, but I would still suggest a minimum of a months notice, which is what they’d be entitled to under the more formal s13 notice. That would mean 1 April rent would increase, and I’d tell them now if I were you. Also just check that your tenancy agreement doesnt have a rent review clause.
