My Landlord has 7 Houses on Rent , We are having This House for last 70 years in our poccession and have been paying Rent regularly , All other Tenants are fight Court cases for last two decades on various matters .
* Landlord wants to increase Rent to current Market Rate But has not done any Repairs on Property for last 3 Decades and even did not allow us to carry out repair to broken Toilet near the House .
* Landlord is not ready to carry out Any Repairs But want to raise Rent .
* We still use the Property but due to damage / Lack of Toilet which was damaged by Landlord himself to evicit other neighbours, we were forced to Buy another Property for Irregular use .
* Other Tenant are still paying old Rent rates to a Bank Account opened on Courts Instructions .
We Do not have any Written agreement with the owner who is long dead but his one son who himself is not resident in his own property next to us is trying to harras us with new measures and tactics .
I want to know what Legally can be done to stop this or can we stop him from increasing rent by 2500 % without ready to provide any accomadation facilities or repair to the property .
Can we ask for any settlement amount from him to move out permentaly ???
Whats is the best possible move to take ?
