    Tenancy Agreement # of pages?

    Hey All,

    I'm a first time user here of these forums, and they look to be packed with some very valid information and opinions.

    I do have a question though, the AST agreement that you can purchase from "Lawpack" is this fine for all AST's? Also does anyone have one, and can you tell me how many pages it is? With this in mind, is it also easy to follow (understand)?

    I look forward to your reply

    There's nothing wrong wth the Lawpack AST.

    However, if you want one that is really thorough you can purchase the CD. One os from ARLA and the other from NAEA. Both are over 20 pages long but are so thorough you are unlikely to miss anything. I think the NAEA version is about £80 plus VAT to non-members. Let me know if you want more information.
    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.


      As Paul says, there's nothing wrong with the Lawpack agreement but read it thoroughly. I bought one and use it as the basis of my agreements. Be aware though, if you make any changes, make sure that the agreement remains legal, check his forum or any questions on this.

        I am a first time landlord. Appreciate anyone's help on the interpretation of the termination clauses for my fully managed let property. The tenancy agreement started in 2017 for 1 year and then went into periodic to now. Tenancy is still active.

        The current contract is quite explicit...

        by DPT57
        What does the tenancy agreement say the deposit is? If it says a months rent for example it would be easy for the tenant to claim that they paid you one week by bank transfer and the rest in cash. It would be practically impossible for you to dispute this and their penalty claim then goes up to 3x 1...

      • Deposit and withholding keys
        by Battered landlord
        I’ve been a bit naive. I had a short hold tenancy agreement with tenants signed 18 months ago for a year. They have just moved out. I only recently obtained a small portion of the deposit (initially was asked if I could give them a bit of a grace period to get depot together). They promised to pay...

        by mariner
        I assume T caused the basin damage, so charge the T for replacing it less estimate for FW&T for lost years of life expectancy since provided new. Thus the Deposit remains intact for other T damage discovered. less FW&T, or combine and use Deposit scheme ADR

      • rough cost of repairing a basin
        by Battered landlord
        Tenants have cracked a basin (it was new when they moved in). The damages outweigh the deposit I have. I got a quote of £200 for a new sink, including labour and disposal of old sink). They have asked how much to just repair it. Can anyone give me a rough idea? Thanks very much.

        I wouldn't repair it. The cost obviously depends on the basin, anything from £30 up. As long you get a similar one fitting should be straightforward so I would think £200 was a bit steep. I doubt you'd need to pay for disposal, it should fit in your wheelie bin.

        by eniacs
        Yes you are right. I've explained to them and they understand. They have come back with another guarantor who has a higher income so will try that. Also have another viewing tomorrow with someone else as a back up.

        Thanks for assistance. Great forums.

      • Tennancy - using a rent guarantor
        by eniacs

        I've got a tennant applying to rent, everything seems normal, visited the place with her mum and has 2 teenage boys. She works part time but not enough to get approved for the rental payments. She has offered her mum (also working and home owner) as guarantor.
