What is a tenancy agreement?
A tenancy agreement is a contract drawn up between a landlord and tenant which details the terms and conditions of the rental agreement. Within the agreement, each party’s rights and responsibilities will be specified.
Despite many online services offering tenancy agreement templates, there is no such thing as a standard Tenancy Agreement. Every property, landlord and tenant arrangement is different, and any mistake in the agreement could prove costly to you further down the line.
There are a number of details that must be present in a tenancy agreement. These include, but are not limited to:
- The parties involved
- Start and end date of the tenancy
- Address of the property
- Name and address of landlord
- Amount of rent paid
- Date when rent is paid
- Rules for the tenant
- Additional charges
- The landlord's responsibilities
The majority of tenancy agreements used by private landlords are known as Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements (AST). These normally last between six to twelve months. Our Liverpool, Manchester and St Helens Landlord Solicitors can help draft or review AST agreements for a fixed fee. We can also discuss with you exactly what is needed in relation to your specific circumstance.
