I have a tenant on a six month AST (their first contract with me) and they are currently in month five of the tenancy. In order for me to raise the rent from £450pcm (below market rent) to £550 pcm (market rent) from the end of the tenancy, should I negotiate a new contract at the higher rate, or should I serve a section 13(2) at the end of month five?

Thanks
