I have advised tenant in writing that there will be a rent increase – gave 7 weeks notice. She is on periodic agreement. However, I have since discovered that I should have got tenant to sign the letter. She is not happy about the rent increase and I suspect she will not pay it, and probably knows her rights.
The rent increase is due to take effect from 1st October. Would it be best if I just issued a section 13 tomorrow giving a months notice from tomorrows date?
Are we within our rights to change monthly payment to calander month instead of four weekly to coincide with housing benefit payments?
