Increasing rent by section 13 when there is a CPI clause?Make Text Bigger
We have a rental property that was rented out on an initial 3 months short term assured tenancy. That period ended and the tenant has been there for nearly 2 years.
We now need to increase the rent and she has said it must be done in accordance with the contract which says it will be done in line with the CPI.
The CPI is, as I understand it very small 0.4% (have I got this wrong) and we want to raise the rent by more.
Can I issue a section 13 notice, given that we are now in a periodic tenancy, or am I obliged to keep to the CPI increase as in the tenancy agreement.
