Negotiating Multi-Year Contracts

Recommended Posts

We've been in a nice house for a couple of years at the asking price rent, renewed each year on 12 month ASTs, no rent rises (even though the agent tried to persuade the LL to do so).

Is is risky asking for a 2 year contract at a lower rent (was only thinking around 5% off)?

Or asking the LL if a longer contract was worth anything to him?

Or is not rocking the boat a good idea?

Looking at it the other way around, if the LL had tried to raise it I would consider looking to lower it or leave - although there's nothing better and cheaper on rightmove right now.

Any thoughts or experiences gratefully received...

depends what sort of landlord you think it is. if it is a professional who knows the market well, I'd say go for it. If it's a less professional, or a reluctant landlord, nah, either they will not understand you or not be able to take a long term view
