I have issued a Section 13 notice to increase the rent on my rental property – tenant has been in situ for over 4 years. In that time I have never increased the rent and have worked with her during difficult times she has had. However, I am now getting £100 per month LESS than the market rental and maintenance and management fees has risen significantly.
I am very proactive with solving problems and maintenance issues – in the past 3 months she has had a new cooker and shower and an expensive boiler repair. However now a new boiler is needed and I can’t cope with the current rent I am receiving.
I talked to her and explained and she seemed to appreciate how fortunate she has been to be paying the low rent she has.
Now she has changed – she says she has not received my rent increase notification. I have checked Royal Mail tracking and is was signed for with an un readable signature but her printed name, and she is not answering my calls.
She is on a rolling contract what should I do?
