My letting agent is saying that I cannot request an increase in rent without switching the tenancy back to a fixed period tenancy from a periodic tenancy.
Is this true and why?
The tenant has been in the property about 3 years with no problems, and the tenancy started on a fixed term; it then went on a periodic basis as no rent increases were issued. I asked the agent to issue a rent increase (to still below market), but the tenant does not want to be on a fixed period tenancy and is obviously balking at the rent increase too!
