Creating the Right Tenancy Agreement
A tenancy agreement is a contract between landlord and tenant. It sets out the respective rights and obligations of both landlord and tenant. If there is a disagreement between parties, the first port of call to resolve the dispute is to check the terms of the tenancy agreement.
Creating the right tenancy agreement is essential as most private landlords have made significant investments in their property and have buy-to-let mortgages, plus all the other expenses associated with owning a lettable property. For others, renting their home or a room in their house is a far more personal experience, but it is just as important to get the tenancy agreement right.
Why You Need a Landlord and Tenant Solicitor to Draft the Lease
A specialist landlord and tenant solicitor can help you ensure that:
- The tenancy is the right type of tenancy agreement for your property and circumstances
- The terms of the tenancy agreement are clear and enforceable
- You understand the need to register as a landlord before entering into a tenancy agreement. (Failure to register could result in a fine of up to £50,000 or a ban, preventing registration for up to 5 years or notice being received that rent will not be payable on the property for a specified period)
- Any deposit taken at the outset of the tenancy agreement is correctly protected. (If a deposit is not placed in a deposit scheme it could result in the loss of 3 months’ rent)
If you need legal advice about the creation of a tenancy, our landlord and tenant solicitors are proactive and efficient, knowing that you want to let out the property as quickly as possible.
