Hi, I've got a tenant that has been living in my property for over a year. I've issued a rent increase and given a month's notice to my tenant. The first month's rent to include the increase has passed but not paid in full. The tenant then questioned that her boyfriend could move in to which I agreed only if they agreed to signing a new agreement committing to a minimum of 6 months at the increased rate. They are not willing to commit so therefore I have made it clear that the boyfriend cannot move in. If this is the state of play the existing agreement remains and the rent increase still stands, but the tenant is stating that she cannot afford it. She doesn't want to give notice. Firstly, am I correct in what I'm doing? And do I now serve her notice? Am I within my rights? Please someone help as there seems no mediation possible and the tenant was paying way below market value anyway and still is.
