    Hi, advice please.

    I recently signed a new tenancy agreement for another six months. Sent back the signed agreement and paid six months rent in advance. Now today I have been sent another tenancy agreement saying "sorry, there is now a £25 a month water charge".

    I cant be expected to pay the extra £25 per month can I?

    If your landlord had already signed it without that stipulation then no I don't think so. If they have just added it I'm pretty sure you can pull out anyway...

    I very much doubt they can enforce it.

    If you've both signed the agreement, then that is an agreement to the terms and conditions you were told about prior to signing.

    For there to be a valid agreement, both parties must unconditionally agree to the express terms given in the offer.

    So basically, the landlors has offered you the extended tennancy, you have accepted, therefore they cannot enforce the £25 without 1. breaking the contract (making them liable for damages) or 2. amending the contract (at your discretion).

    So, yeah - tell them to shove it where the sun don't shine.
