Tenancy agreement forms were added to the Landlord Law service in about 2004 by customer request and are now delivered via our Document Generator service.
This is a kind of 'online mail merge' service where documents are created by merging information you put in our form with one of our template documents.
The tenancy agreement forms contain a lot of detailed guidance on completing the form so you are compliant with the current rules. Most people find them very helpful.
The tenancy agreements are one of the most popular Landlord Law services and many of our members (including many letting agents) regularly use our agreements for their tenancies.
Different tenancy types:
As the law between England and Wales is diverging, we now have separate templates for our English and Welsh tenancy agreements. We have the following main tenancy types:
Standard ASTs. Our most popular tenancy form.
Standard ASTs for a room in a shared house. These are suitable for HMO properties where you are renting out individual rooms where tenants share the common parts.
Our Student ASTs - these are designed with student lets in mind and are discussed in our (members) article here. They provide a solution to the issue of what to do over the summer months and the potential problems that can occur if students stay on after the end of your fixed term. We have versions for both England & Wales and for shared lets and lets for individual rooms.
Resident landlord lets. These are where a landlord grants a tenancy for self-contained accommodation for the property where they live, as opposed to lodger agreements (for which see our special website here).
Company lets. This is suitable for lets for a company to use for its own directors and employees. It is not suitable for 'rent to rent' situations.
We do not have an agreement suitable for 'rent to rent' situations as part of Landlord Law membership, but one is available for purchase along with our >> 'Rent to Rent' training course. It is not available as a stand-alone document though..
About the Landlord Law tenancy agreements
Our tenancy agreements are drafted by Tessa Shepperson and are regularly updated to take account of changes in the law. They are in a plain English format.
We also provide some suggested additional clauses you may wish to use (for example a break clause). If you need a clause which is not in the list, Tessa will help you draft one if you ask a question in the members' forum.
The tenancy agreements can be found, along with other tenancy agreement related resources, via the Tenancy Agreements Topic page.
