    Tenant Application form - filling PDF forms

    I designed my own tenant application in Microsoft Word. I converted it PDF. I email this to tenants. They generally print this off and hand-write and then sign it.

    Technology as moved on PDF technology. My PDF does not have the ability to 'fill in the form'. Is there a way of making of making my PDF form fillable? So they type in their name, address on the form, but only need to print off before signing?

    This is an IT question, but hopefully someone has done this before?

    PDF forms are quite an old feature.

    I don't know what Microsoft Word can do, but LibreOffice can create PDF forms. I did, however, have problems with its font handling, as it doesn't seem to embed the fonts needed for the form fields. It might be OK if both the creator and filler are using Windows, or if you specify standard Postscript fonts.

    Given how long they have been available, it is surprising how many forms have to be printed and over- typed, rather than filled in then printed.

      Something that came up in a discussion in our office today;
      1) I understand the ASTs not signed in our office gives tenants 14 days to cancel their agreement. But what happens if the tenancy has already started?
      2) What happens if some tenants sign in office and some sign out of office,...

      The distance selling regulations (2000) do seem to apply to rental agreements - which is interesting.

      It is possible to prevent the cancellation of an agreement once a service has started to be supplied, as long as that condition is confirmed in writing to a consumer before they sign the...

      Hi,

      I have received a letter from my letting/management agent, saying that from the 1st of April they are going to increase there percentage by 2%+VAT. They are stating that the reason for this is that their costs have increased over the past years. I have been with them for aprox 18 months...

      Why not suggest that you will agree with the new fee structure once they have agreed that the tenant's rent will be increased by the corresponding amount and they've started paying it.

      It's a general legal rule that applies to most service contracts.
      There's an automatic cooling off period if the agreement is signed on the business premises or done over the phone or by post.

      There are a number of exclusions and it doesn't apply to tenancies (as far as I know)....

      Never heard of that before. Is that some bit of law that only applies to letting agents?...

      I agree with what your saying, it would be silly to move just to get get a worse deal elsewhere and ultimately the agents will recoup their money somehow, if they cant raise it by increasing landlord fees then they'll increase introduction fees etc instead.

      As to whether they are a good...

      Are they a good agent in all other areas? If you would like to stay with them without the fees increase I would first try negotiating with them. They will not want to lose your business and if you go elsewhere you may get worse service & a fee increase too! As mentioned above, it seems likely that...

      It increases the fee to 11%+VAT, as you said thats an increase of 22%, which makes me suspect that its more to do with the banning of fees rather than an increase in their running costs. Interestingly the letter also references the banning of fees coming into force and does suggest that i might like...
