hi all

im a protective tenant of some 27 years over the last 2 years i have have had 2 new landlords neither of whom have given me any form of tenancy agreement but have just said the old agreement still stands

now the rent assesemant officer has sent me the usaul form informing me of my rent increase ( every 2 years no problem) however the landlord is trying to put the rent up under the guise that they provide a service ( when i complained they said they ticked the wrong box) but because he gets charged by the owner of the building £ 870 per year insurance and maintenance, and admin charge this is good reason to pass this cost onto me, the fact that they have done bugger all to the property really winds me up

i know the rent officer has to inspect the property but can a new landlord inflick some sort of maintenace charge upon me?

i have never paid any sort of charge the whole 27 years i have lived in the house

Hi saturday night drive in

 

When a new LL buys a property with a existing sitting tenant regulated (protected) tenancy and your rent is registered under 1977 rent act..

 

Your LL cannot whack on a huge service charge,as you where paying No service charge before hand,the new LL hasn't got a leg to stand on.

 

You or the LL have the right to Object within 28 days of the decision by the rent officer,then the rent officer will refer the case to the rent assessment committee...

My tenancy is the same as yours and was sold to new LL who tried to charge me £15.00 a week service charge,until i pointed out that i was Not paying service charge under my old LL and there was No service charge shown on the entry on the rent register https://ebusiness.voa.gov.uk/err/SearchRegister.aspx

 

Your new LL will be lucky to get just a few pounds increase in the rent..

As for me, happy to help out. I am not a Landlord, but I have been in the past. I am not an Agent, but I have been in the past. I am, therefore, a has been, so always seek independent and suitably qualified advice elsewhere before relying upon whatever has been posted here :-)
