Hi, My girlfriend and I saw a flat we wanted to move into so went to the estate agents to put on a holding deposit. The rent was �880 per month but the landlord wanted to increase the rent to �910 per month once we moved in. The flat was advertised at �880 so when discussing this with the agent last Saturday we agreed to move in on the condition that we would pay �880 for the first 6 months and after that pay �910. This is because my girlfriend in in university and will be working in 6 months time so we will be able to afford the �910 then. So my question is has the estate agent got the right to increase the rent after we agreed on a lower rate and paid a holding deposit? Thanks for reading! Hope someone can help.
