After 7 years of damp mouldy windows the landlord has finally replaced them, but then wants to put rent up to pay for them. I sought advice and found lots of legal things he hadn’t done correctly.
He had missed 4 gas checks, no electric certificate, no energy performance certificate and hadn’t protected my bond.
We agreed that once all was in place and he served a section 13 I would pay an extra £10 per week fixed for 3 years. He is working on them, but today 22/04/2016 issued a new tenancy with the increased rent nothing in it to say fixed for 3 yrs.
I have become a statutory periodic tenant and I was under the impression he had to serve a section 13 first to increase the rent?
