My tenant is still paying rent but not moving out after his 6 month AST had expired . He was given a section 21 notice for that date and was told verbally at the outset that the contract could only be for 6 months, as the property was let, and is let to students (who are waiting to move in ).
He has been offered other properties but says they are not suitable.
I am not going to enforce the section 21 notice to go for accelerated possession.
Can I …..
a) increase his rent whilst waiting for the eviction order to take effect
b) can he continue on the periodic tenancy at a higher rent, or would increasing rent nullify the existing section 21. notice
