Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement Rent Review

As soon as an agreement has been reached, the landlord should send a formal duplicate in which he proposes the new rent and asks the tenant to sign, date and return a copy to confirm his agreement. If the tenant does not return the letter or does not pay the new rent, the rent has not been effectively verified. The agreement may state what the owner is legally responsible for, as well as any additional responsibilities he or she may assume with respect to the property. This involves informing you in advance at least 24 hours before a visit, making sure the property complies with all health and safety rules, describing the parts of the property they will repair or replace, and any other legal obligations they have. . . .
