Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

Hi, I was wondering if any one could help me out here?
I have a clause on my tenancy agreement stating that rent will be increased on annual basis on 28th of September. Thus, I expected agency to send me a notice for that before September but I did not receive anything.
This month I received email about rent a increase and they state that my rent increase date on the contract is 28th of December which is wrong, of course they would also like to renew my contract which was also 28th of September and asking for renewal fee.
My questions are;
1) Can they increase my rent after the date on the contract passes or do they have to wait till next year to increase it?
2) As my contract (assured shorthold tenancy agreement) actually ended on 28th of September 2014 and rolled to periodic tenancy, can I directly talk to landlord without agency?
3) Can I refuse to pay the renewal fee? Landlord manages the property.
