I have asked the tenant of a small cafe I own for a rent increase
as there has been no increase for 9 years.However she has consulted
a solicitor and states she wants the rent actually to be less in the first year of the new lease which incidentally expired on 9/12/11.She also wants
a new 6 year lease instead of 3years.I have put forward my proposals for
rent increases over 3 years,but her solicitor is threatening to take it to court.Can I give her notice to quit and I suppose alternatively I can
put the property up for sale. Any ideas on this?
