It is not unusual for a landlord to try to push for improved terms on a lease renewal. However, where you are negotiating a renewal of a lease which is protected pursuant to the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 (1954 Act), remember: the House of Lords has held that 1954 Act lease renewals should be on the same terms as the old lease (save for reasonable modernisation). If the renewal goes to Court, the Court should not generally use its discretion to change terms and should only do so in circumstances where it is fair and reasonable to do so.
Two other points you should note when you are granting leases:
