Hi, we moved to London recently and would appreciate some advice on our issue. My wife and i rented a 2br apartment in London. My mother has to move in with us now for personal reasons, but the landlord is saying he wants to increase the rent. Does he have the right to do that? We don’t have kids and we rented a 2 bedroom apartment for situations like this (or if we plan to have kids). To me, this is similar to having a kid as a new occupant, will the landlord also ask to increase the rent then?
Any advice on whether the landlord has the right to increase the rent in such a situation?
Thanks for your help!
