We recieved a letter stating that from the 1st December the rent would be increased (by 20%) and we would be required to sign a new tenancy agreement. However, with less than a month to go we still haven’t actually received a copy of the agreement (despite asking) so we cannot see the terms and conditions or even whether it is 6 or 12 months etc. Obviously, without knowing what the new agreement is going to be we can’t decide whether to accept it or to move somewhere else.
My question is presumably they must give us at least a month (or some similar reasonable time) from when we see the contract before we are required to sign it i.e. they can’t drop a new contract on us 3 days before it kicks in and say “sign up for 12 months or you must be gone in 3 days.”
Can anyone point me to how the rules work with this as I can’t seem to find any information on it.
Thanks in advance.
