    Mandatory Grounds in the Assured Shorthold Agreement

    Hi, I have just updated our agreement from our online solicitors and have noticed they have taken out the Mandatory Grounds, is this ok or should they be in? As they are solicitors sending this through i would have thought this would be but I just wanted to check as I feel uneasy about it. thanks in advance for your helpf.

    Why use a solicitor who (presumably) charges you?

    The free government AST -
    https://www.gov.uk/government/public...ssured-tenancy
    - lists all grounds...

    Think if e.g. mortgage ground ain't there it can't be used. Sounds like I'd fire the solicitor. Do the SPECIALISE in landlord/tenant law?
    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...

      Hi, yes they do specialise in landlord and tenant law and this is all they do. We have always used them and updated our contracts with them but they have changed them so much recently I just wanted to check. I will look at the government one and see. thank you

        In your shoes I'd join - if not already member - RLA or NLA and use ALL their documents. And get the other benefits also.. (eg helpline..)

        But I have yet to see a tenancy agreement I did not subsequently decide could be improved/had errors: Include ones I had myself "improved".
