I have a few questions regarding me and my girlfriends rent situation.
Our second year is coming to an end in just over a month but we would like to renew for a third year.
We are a little worried that the rent may be increased or at worse we would be asked to leave.
Over the past 2 years we have had no trouble with noise complaints or any warnings whatsoever. Maintenance has been requested a couple of times and early on the lack of urgency was unseen before compared to previous property's I have rented.
What is the best way to continue for another year at least and not incur an increase in rent?
Should we call the estate agent now which is just over a month from our second year ending?
Would it be better for it to roll over into the start of year 3 or would this give us a disadvantage. As in could they just then give us one months notice to leave because we have not signed a lease agreement?
