GN13-10 Increase in Rent Threshold for Assured Tenancies in England

Legislation has been introduced that amends the Housing Act 1988 by raising the annual rental threshold for assured tenancies from £25,000 to £100,000.  It is a short piece of legislation that will have a far reaching effect on the private rented sector.  Among other implications, Landlords whose tenancies began after 15 January 1989 but before the 28 February 1997 without the service of a valid section 20 notice should seek immediate legal advice if their rent will fall within the new band.
