My tenant’s 12-month fixed term AST ends on the 1st of November 2022. However, instead of letting it roll onto a periodic tenancy can I start a completely new AST to increase the currently low rent to include:
1/ management service charge.
2/ ground rent.
I am concerned that doing so would violate PERMITTED FEE regulations?
The existing AST limits the yearly rental rise to 5% which is much less than 1/ + 2/ above which I feel the letting agent should have included as I must pay directly to the service company.
Any advice, please.
