  • Correct AST document to use....any advice please

    Hi
    I have been using an old AST agreement version on all past lets in my property which was fine before all tyhe new regulations came into force about deposits. Is there a newer version that must be used to incorporate the new jargon about the deposits protection and stuff? I dont think I can carry on using my old one since it's a bit archaic. Does anyone know where I can download a good one?
    Also can anyone tell me where I can get a "prescribed format" document to hand to my new tenants about the deposits information or can I just write it out myself. Really would appreciate the info as this will be a new tenancy under the new reg's.
    Thanks!!

    Try using the internet and Google! You'll be surprised by what you can find!
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

        No, often it's very much worse. Try using LZ's "AGREEMENTS" feature at top of page, to see what's available.

        1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
        2. Telephone advice: see http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=34638.
        3. For paid advice about conveyancing/leaseholds/L&T, contact me* and become a private client.

          Nah! sometimes it's a lot worse, Have a look at 'agreements' on this site for forms, or as Paulf says, trawl the internet to find a free one, be careful though that it does the job properly and ask advice before you alter any of the clauses.
          I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

            Thanks for that! It's just that I have had my previous tenants for 4 years and they are sadly moving on so Im finding out that things have changed radically in terms of deposits and things so I just wanted to ahead of the game so to speak.
            Thanks again!
