Hello, Has anyone had any experience with the First-tier Tribunal (FTT) for market value case?
History is, tenant moved in and given 12 month AST in early 2020. They have not been given new AST or had rent raised since.
Rent proposed notified by Form 4 (email and sent Royal Mail signed for) to raise the rent to a figure still well below market value.
Tenant has not contacted me and has just not paid higher rental amount and now I have received a case from the FTT.
Has anyone ever had this?
I have raised many a rent before (all reasonable market value increases) and previously either the tenant pays or moves out, and they usually contact me to tell me what their intentions are going forward.
I have never came across this. Can they refuse to pay the rent increase (which is below market value) and refuse to move out?
Has anyone been through a case with the First-tier Tribunal?
