I am coming up to the end of a fixed rental agreement (1 year) I will probably renew (been in the property for 2 years). The landlord now wants to increase the rent by £20 a month (I was informed via the letting agent).
My question is: Is he allowed to spring this on me? I was under the impression that 6 months notice had to be given (as stated on the government web-site: https://www.gov.uk/private-renting/rent-increases)
Before I make a fool of myself with the letting agent OR get conned by them I’d love to know the facts.
Thanks in advance.
