    Hi there
    Does anyone know where I can get a template (free if possible) for a tenancy agreement. In word document preferably? Thanks for reading

    gov.uk...free...

    https://www.gov.uk/government/public...ssured-tenancy

    But you need loads more documents
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        The government's precedent is better than either.

            Yes, I agree, but I was thinking more for the learning, (which incidentally is also not perfect).

              The problem with a site that is almost always right is that you do not know if the answer to your question is right! Of course even an expert is not always right. Apart from that there are areas of uncertainty, not to mention cases where the experts are surprised by apparently perverse court rulings. And then you have information which is essentially correct, but incomplete.

              The problem for the layman is that he is necessarily unable to assess the quality of the advice. If the advice is to be relied on some investigation into the pedigree of those giving advice is desirable, but confirmation of the adviser's qualification to give advice is unfortunately usually unobtainable. I say I was a landlord and tenant lawyer, but no one knows for sure if I was. And you need to be wary of those who hold themselves out as experts. I have been contributing to forums like this for something like fifteen years and the quality of advice given by solcitors often leaves a lot to be desired and is sometimes just plain wrong.

              On the whole, books are more reliable than the internet, even if a book is liable to be out of date before it is printed. A good policy if using books aimed at the layman is to consult at least two. Books aimed at the professional are best avoided until you have got to grips with the basics. Books are less likely than the internet to disseminate misinformation. The spread of well-meant misinformation is the curse of the internet and the price which has to be paid for the free exchange of information.

                by Luke
                I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .
                I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
                I do not intend to live at the property
                Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?

                I am not suggesting it is the landlord's fault. I am just saying that, in some cases, if a tenant feels secure he is more likely to take care of a place....

                Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

                House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant
                Garden was left in a mess...

                That is because you have to do things properly for S21 to be valid.

                Do everything properly and the S21 is valid.
                Get one thing wrong and it is invalid. There are many things to get right....

                by Beeble
                We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

                Tenant moved in...

                The requirement comes from the tenancy terms. There are various reasons why a contract term may be void or unenforceable. They include: illegal; impossible; contrary to public policy; statute forbids them to be imposed; unfair. A requirement to keep a dwelling clean and leave it it clean is none of...

                I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

                Lawcruncher,

                Why does a tenant need to leave the property in a reasonable state of cleanliness if the property wasn't in a reasonable state of cleanliness at the start of the tenancy? Where does the requirement come from? The deposit protection schemes don't appear to take that approach...
