Question

Is it reasonable that a small business in West Kensington, the landlord of which is TfL, has been waiting a year for TfL to decide by how much they plan to increase his rent and to send him a backdated bill?

It is completely unacceptable that a tenant should wait a year for Transport for London (TfL) to begin a rent review. I understand that TfL’s property manager has visited the business and apologised. I have instructed TfL to ensure that this situation does not happen again.
