Why use a Tenancy Agreement?

A tenancy agreement is a contract entered into between a landlord and their tenant that sets out the respective rights and obligations of the parties. It is always recommended to have a written tenancy agreement for this purpose. The Housing Act 1996 states that if the parties do not agree the terms of a residential tenancy agreement then it will automatically be considered to be an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement or Shorthold Tenancy Agreement as it is more commonly known and will have a number of terms implied into it by law. These clauses cover matters such as termination notice requirements. Our tenancy agreement template includes all of the required clauses and also makes provision for the requirements of the recently implemented Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme. The Tenancy Deposit Scheme also makes it a legal requirement to have in place a written agreement with a tenant if a deposit is going to be paid by them. Most landlords will require that a deposit is held and so you may find our guide to the Tenancy Deposit Scheme useful. A popular tenancy agreement form is therefore our Prescribed Information Form, which a landlord must use when holding a deposit.
Our Shorthold Tenancy Agreement Template

Our Tenancy Agreement Template is available in two versions. We have a no guarantor version and a version that includes provision for a guarantor. The same applies to our Lodger Agreement which is also available in guarantor and no guarantor versions. The Lodger Agreement is a shorter version of the Tenancy Agreement Template as it does not contain the same clauses required by law to protect the tenant. This is because, where the landlord lives in the property, the terms of the Housing Act do not apply.

There are three types of tenancy agreement that can be used when renting residential property. These tenancy agreements are: The Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement (often abbreviated to Shorthold Tenancy Agreement or AST), the Assured Tenancy Agreement, and the Regulated Tenancy Agreement. The Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement is the most common form of tenancy agreement. It is suitable for use by a landlord letting out all or part of a private residential property. The Assured Tenancy Agreement and the Regulated Tenancy Agreement contain considerably more favorable terms for the tenant and grant very strong rights of occupation. These two types of tenancy agreement are rarely used by landlords who are renting out property for short periods (periods of less than 7 years) and are more commonly used by Housing Associations.

For a tenancy agreement to be a valid assured shorthold tenancy agreement, it must meet certain requirements that are set out in the Housing Act 1988. These are that the tenant must be an individual; the property must be residential; and the property must be occupied by the tenant as their only or principal home. As mentioned above, a tenant who is party to a shorthold tenancy agreement benefits from a number of provisions relating to notice requirements and termination of the tenancy that are provided for in the Housing Act 1996 and are included in our tenancy agreement template. For a full understanding of the differences between the three types of tenancy agreement you can read our guide to Understanding Tenancy Agreements.
