We have been renting a property of over 10 years from private landlord who has over 40 properties in the local area,  also we have had no issues and never missed any rent payments and looked after the property. In September 2022 the landlord informed us the rent was increasing and giving 4 weeks notice and all was fine. However the landlord again in January 2023 sent letter increasing our rent by 20% as of 1st February 2023 again we had no choice but to pay the increased amount. Yesterday we were told by another Tennent the landlord was making another rent increase and letters will be sent out to tenant's.

Since September 2022 our rent has increased by 35% and at this rate will be unaffordable, my question is can landlord make multiple rent increase, we have been on the local social housing list for 12 years and they have been no help, as we rent we have no housing needs thus our banding is the lowest. 

Just seeing if the landlord is correct and can keep increasing or are there any rules regarding rent increases when renting from private landlord in England. 

 Any feedback would be grateful
