Agreement to increase rent

document allows you to increase the rent in cases where the tenant agrees to the increase. It can be used even if proceedings have already started under the Housing Act 1988 to change the rent.

It is only suitable for assured tenancies in England and Wales.

Do not use it if there is a rent review or rent increase clause in the tenancy agreement, or some other agreement in place between the landlord and tenant for changing the rent. It is also unsuitable in the situation where there are multiple landlords and one of those landlords is a business.

If you want to increase the rent without getting your tenant's agreement, you may be able to use our document Notice under section 13 of the Housing Act 1988.

Landlord and Tenant law is complicated and contains many requirements which, if not followed to the letter, could invalidate the document you are seeking to serve and prejudice your ability to recover possession. We therefore recommend that you seek legal advice if there is anything with which you are unclear. This advice can be obtained from Slater & Gordon Solicitors, who will be happy to provide you with a quote for their costs before any work is undertaken.
