Can you just confirm, does the LL live in the same flat as you or not ?

 

Regards, Rent increases - your rent can only be increased once every 12 months (with 3 months notice) and if you think the proposed increase is unfair you can refer it to a rent officer.   https://tinyurl.com/y7zga7cl     .url takes you to shelter Scotland.

 

But

 

LL could serve you with a notice to quit https://tinyurl.com/yxl4bmp5        .url takes you to shelter Scotland,

 

Can you upload a copy of your tenancy agreement in pdf format with All personal and LL details blanked out .

From looking at the TA.

 

I don't think LL could get away increasing the rent by the amount you stated with you signing a new TA, which you are under No obligation to sign.

 

You can appeal the rent increase,  But the LL could serve you with a notice to quit.

 

Sorry to sound blunt you could always look for some else to live.

 

See what advice stu007 gives you...................
