Memorandum of Rent Increase for Non-Assured Shorthold Tenancy
This Memorandum of Rent Increase for Non-Assured Shorthold Tenancy should be used where the Landlord and Tenant have agreed to increase the rent payable under a contractual tenancy agreement that has expired.
When the fixed term of a tenancy has expired the Tenant is allowed to remain in occupation of the property and the tenancy becomes a “periodic” tenancy. The Landlord and Tenant may wish to agree an increased rent without entering into a new tenancy agreement. This Memorandum can be used to record the new agreed rent.
An alternative is for the parties to enter into a new tenancy agreement, on the same terms as the old agreement (unless there are other terms the parties wish to vary) but with a higher rent figure. This would create a new fixed term, giving the Landlord and Tenant certainty that the tenancy will not be terminated until the fixed term has expired. For a simple new tenancy agreement which incorporates the terms of the old document see the Tenancy Renewal template.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
