Our agent has raised the rent via our new agreement. The landlord was unaware. No letter or anything. Is this normal?



Hi Marty

When was the rent last raised? I wouldn’t have thought it was normal for the agent to do it without constuling the landlord, unless that’s what the agreement between them requires. Does the landlord want the rent to be put up?



The landlord would have to give you notice that the rent was being raised before poresenting you with a new agreemnt.  Check your old agreement it should have a clause stating two months’ notice.  If you are not in a fixed term you should have been served a section 13 notice..  Good luck
