Tenant rent increase

Topic deleted thanks

If a sect 13 was issued then its binding , your tenant has taken the mick from day one , I would send a sect 21 and sect 8 for arrears and see what he says to that as you are losing hundreds and the stress level

You’re letting your tenant take advantage of your good nature. Use section 13 for rent increases, you don’t need a new fixed term, especially as this tenant sounds like they are not willing to pay any increase the last thing you want is a new tenancy agreement.

Your tenant is clearly in charge, so the best way forward if you want a rent increase is to take back control. Stop messing about and serve a s13 notice at the rent level you want. If he doesnt pay, he will be in arrears since the notice will have taken effect. You can then evict him if you wish.

It is not for the tenant to set the rental payment and when it increases. Issue a Section 13 and then it is set by you.
