How often can the landlord review my rent?
This depends on the rent review provisions contained in the lease. The most commonly adopted norm is every 5 years but in some cases it can be every 3 years. So look at the lease to be sure. The review pattern is one item among many which are open to negotiation at the outset. There are also more unusual arrangements, such as annual indexation linked to the retail price index. It’s unusual to have a rent review in a very short lease.
