Also, IIRC, you need 90 days notification in writing before a rent increase can take effect. The rent increase does not have to happen at the same time as the lease expiring

Emailed the estate agent 2 days ago to confirm everything discussed over the phone. Just highlighted the rent increase and asked would that begin 90 days after signing the new lease. Also added a maintenance list of things to be fixed and asked about a counter top freezer.

No reply so emailed today asking was our previous email received. Hopefully he wont try something on like issue our notice ...

Still no response from the estate agent.

We just paid the first month of our 3rd year anyway. My girlfriend read somewhere that we automatically can stay in the property for 4 years at a certain stage.

What your girlfriend is referring to is your Part IV rights. Once you’re there more than 6 months these kick in. As your tenancy started before December 2016 you have right to stay for 4 years unless specific conditions met such as sale, relative moving in or substantial refurb. For any tenancies starting after December 2016 the part Iv term is 6 years.

Got a 15 month lease and we can leave in the first 3 months and retain our deposit. 4% rent increase starts on the 4th month.

Just waiting on maintenance issues to be addressed.

I wouldn't have tied myself into a 15 month lease when you have Part IV there. Presumably if you must leave after, say 6 months, you are potentially on the hook for 9 months rent?

We prefer to know that we are guaranteed at least 1 year based on location and prices

You don’t need a fixed term lease to guarantee that really. Once there 6 months you have Part IV rights which means you can now stay up to 6 years unless limited circumstances.

Either way you can be in situ not pay rent and landlord and Rtb will take on average a year to get to you out.

Two of the most common reasons landlords use to evict tenant during part4 is sale of property and relative moving in. If the tenant has a fixed term lease, eviction for those reasons is not permissible during the term of the lease.

Your name will be on the RTB site, a mass murderer would have a better chance of getting a place to rent in the future.

Darragh, possibly your girlfriend read it on this thread! Several posters have told you about part 4 tenancy rights and you don't seem to have taken it in at all? Google what it is and your mind will be at rest....it will also stop people having to keep repeating the information to you. There are benefits to a lease as mentioned above but you won't be kicked out without reason.

It's factual information, unfortunately. But I agree that it's a horrible situation for any decent landlord to have been put in by a government of cowards.
