Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020

If I raise the rent to match (or be slightly under) the LHA rate, what about the Bond secured as a deposit?
The Bond at the time was for the 5 weeks max rent, so do I ask for an increase to match the rent increase?
Bit of a dilemma even if benefits pay the rent increase. The Bond is organised with the council and the tenant and agreement is that they will pay the Bond back to the Council over two years.
Does that mean the Bond is simply increased, then the Council add that extra to the Bond for the tenant to pay back??
Anyone had any experience of this before?
