Good morning and a Happy New Year to you all!
Now that our first working day of the year is out of the way, I am now making a start on my number one major project of 2016: rent increases.
I have not increased rents during a agreement in over 25 years, but occasionally make (small) adjustments at the change of tenancies. However, overall my rents have remained virtually the same for at least the last 7-8 years I can realistically remember.
I am starting to construct the letter which will be sent out to some 300-350 tenants of mine with the main focus being on the causation of such action, namely Clause 24 and I plan to direct tenants to the SayNoToGeorge site and give some background to the subject.
Now I know that a number of you on this forum are also doing similar and wondered if you’d be willing to share your own letters -not only because I’m feeling lazy after so much turkey and chocolates, but so that we have a reasonably collective voice over the issue.
The rent officer for the region, with whom I have a good working relationship (or so the mini mince pies from him left on my desk by my secretary appear to suggest!), will soon be receiving my updated rental figures, which will include these new, higher rents. This will hopefully mean my action does not go unnoticed by local and central governments and if for any reason my, or indeed, your own tenants come into contact with either on the same topic, then we/they are using one unified argument that puts this change squarely at the door of GO’s proposals.
Your help, as always, is gratefully received.
