    Serving Rent Increase Notice

    Hi Guys,

    I'm going to increase my tenant's rent and am aware that I need to issue a Section 13 Notice.  Can I scan and email it to my tenant?  I usually hand deliver it but I live 200 miles away and need to serve it before the end of this month and I can't get there before then. I just want to make sure that it would still be legally binding.

    It entirely depends on the wording of your tenancy agreement. If it allows for email service, then yes. However, it probably does not, so no.

    Thank you for your quick response.  She has been in the property for 10 years so you're probably right that it doesn't mention email service but I'll double-check.

    Hi Amber,

    It might be worth looking in to Viewber serving the notice for you ...

    This is the sort of activity they will undertake for landlords.

    Hi Vanessa,

    I've never heard of this service before so I'll check it out.  Thank you!

    Or send by registered post?  Or, perhaps you could email your tenant and ask whether they would be happy to agree that future email correspondence would be acceptable (and get a delivery & read receipt for them).

    You don’t need to use a S13 if you think tenant will agree to the rent increase.  A letter setting out the proposed increase and effective date, if they agree ask they amend their standing order from that date.
