Talk to the tenant first and explain .....

* the reason for the increase,

* remind him there have been no increases for 5 years,

* explain how 6.5% increase is quite small and is just 1.3% per year.

* let him know the consequences ie he will loose the property if the increas is not paid.

If there is a guarantor then talk to them and if reasoning fails I'd issue a section 21 notice.
