is it right our rent can go up from 496.00 to 600.00 per calender month as our house can not be let on the open market so not many people can rent it

Hi William

Any rent increase should be fair and realistic and, unless it’s the start of a new tenancy, the landlord needs your permission to increase the rent if it’s by more than previously agreed (although be aware that some landlords will simply remove a tenant who doesn’t agree to a rent increase).

It’s difficult to say whether your rent increase is fair and realistic without knowing more details but it sounds fairly significant. If you’re not happy with the increase then you can apply to the First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber – Residential Property). This is an independent body that will hear from both you and the landlord and then decide whether a rent increase is fair – there is more info here including how to apply.
