Rent Assessment Committees

Recommended Posts

As I understand, for a standard AST a tenant can apply a)in the first 6 month period or b)after receiving notice of proposal for new rent ie. a new tenancy after a periodic has ended

The RAC will only look if there is a 10% gap to the market rents. However, why can't a LL argue that the tenant in the case of a)agreed to the tenancy, presumably having looked at other properties and therefore agreeing to the price and B) isn't required to take on a new tenancy, can serve their notice and quit

How frequently do these things actually happen?

I would think very seldom, since most landlords would terminate the AST asap! Probably most likely to happen when tenant has some specific reason for not moving - child attending local special school for the deaf - something like that.
