Based on the information you have provided, a calculation has been made to illustrate how rent adjudication (if modified) could apply to your increase. This figure is based on the difference between the current rent and the open market rent, and illustrates the maximum rent that could be charged in this scenario.

Please note that the figures produced by the calculator are for illustrative purposes only.

You can only receive a formal rent adjudication decision by applying to Rent Service Scotland (or the First-tier Tribunal, where appropriate) and the decision may be different to the figures produced by the calculator. It is important to note that they cannot set the rent higher than that requested by the landlord.
