    New AST contract. unsure what to put on the last line in bold.

    Hi, I've acquired a new AST contract. However, I am unsure as to what to put on the last line? The term will be 12 months.
    Please advise.

    Property: [ADDRESS]
    Rent: £[ ] per Calendar Month
    Rent Payment Dates: [ ] day of each Month.
    Rent Payment Method: [ ]
    Scheme Administrator: administrator of either a custodial or insurance Tenancy
    Deposit Scheme.
    TDS: Tenancy Deposit Scheme [ ].
    Term: a fixed term from and including [ ] to and including [ ]

    Cheers,
    George

    The start and end of the fixed term date, it doesn't say how long the fixed term is ie. 12 months.

      Where did you acquire this document please? Where will you get all the other paperwork you will need (eg deposit, inventory, how 2 rent etc etc etc) please?

        The above is good way of indicating the length of a term. Slightly better, as it leaves no room for argument is:

        Term: a fixed term starting on and including [ ] and ending on and including [ ]

          Usually for a 12 month tenancy dd/mm/yy (start date of tenancy) to same dd-1, same mm, yy+1. (Unless dd was 01, obvs..)

          Suggest avoid specifying times during day.

            If you mean providing, for example, that the tenancy starts at 9 a.m. and finishes at 5 p.m., I agree that is not a great idea as there is then doubt about what day a notice to quit should expire.

            If the purpose of ending a tenancy before midnight is to ensure you get the keys back on the last day, just put in a clause saying the keys are to be returned on the last day.
