Hi

A property we recently purchased has a tenant with a 5 year AST, which started in 2005. The rent they are paying is well below market value. The AST has a clause stating "Rent can be incresed every two years".

I have noticed that the guidance notes on Section 13(2) says not to use it if the tenancy agreement contains a term allowing rent increases. What procedure should we use for informing the tenant of the rent increase?

Thanks for your help
Mandy
