    Picking up keys day after start date

    so I’m new to renting so sorry if anything sounds a bit stupid!

    Ill keep it brief - I signed the tenancy agreement and everything is paid and my start date is Friday the 16th and my inventory is Friday, but the agents said I pick the keys up Saturday 4pm? Do I have a right to the keys on the tenancy start date?

    You have a right to occupy the property on the start date and the landlord has a duty to ensure that you can secure it. I don't see how those can be achieved without your having the keys!

      Yes.

      If the tenancy agreement says the start date is Friday 16th, the landlord is in breach of that agreement if they don't allow you access on 16th August.

      If you can't access the property until the 17th, that's what the tenancy agreement should say (provided you're OK with the change).

      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).
