    Most Landlord Friendly Tenancy Agreement

    I've previously got burnt using an estate-agents tenancy agreement. I'm looking to revamp all my paperwork going forward. Is there consensus on the best and most landlord friendly tenancy agreement? If so, how do i get a copy?

    Also is there a best-practice list for checking in a new tenant? I've seen that people make tenants sign a doc saying they've seen that all smoke alarms are working etc. If there's such a list - or you can detail the specific steps we should take when dealing with new tenants i'd be very appreciative.

    Thx.

    Join NLA/RLA to use theirs or use Govt standard TA. (not perfect).

      The government model agreement looks pretty good to me, and has the kind of checklists you're looking for.
      Joining a landlord agreement usually gives access to a support service as well as their tried and tested agreements.

      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        Tenant friendly tenancy agreements are hard to come by. Either use the goverment one or one you find in an up-to-date book published by a reputable publisher. Resist the temptation to make changes. As for getting to grips with proper procedure, again a book is probably your best bet.

            Sorry, can't help with that question as I have not lived in the UK for a while.

                The best book is defending possession proceedings by nic madge, jan luba et al. The definitive text for this side of housing law. Its a great book.
