I wouldn't take this much further if I was you. I think English is not your first language so tread carefully. Streets Ahead are known to me and quite a few from a TV programme I think, but I could not comment!

Yes English is not my first language but I think not my language is the problem. They can told me about increase faster. For me is imposible to find other house in 3 days. If that house will be for me then is not problem ( I can take an hostel) but I have small child and girlfriend in home.

If at time of being notified of rent increase you had not signed the T agreement (AST), paid deposit & first months rent I fear ther is little you can do. All you have is a contract with LA for intent to supply.
