Market rents

This section looks at market rents.  These describe the way rent is increased or decreased for assured, short assured, and private residential tenants.

Type of tenancy

Before advising on rent increases it is first necessary to establish what type of assured tenancy is held. 

Failure to increase rent correctly

If a landlord fails to give the correct notice of increase or operate a rent review clause in accordance with the agreement, then the rent that s/he is demanding will not usually be payable.
