    How long before start of tenancy can tenant sign AST?

    Just wondering how long before the start of an AST a tenant can sign the Agreement, even though they won't move in until the date it starts? For example, a week before the start date?

    Tenant is on HB so wants to take the signed Agreement in to the council in advance (and council won't use a copy that is unsigned) to 'get the ball rolling.'

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure of any advance limit, but a week is fine.
    Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

      The longer the gap, the more things that can go wrong (or the more likelihood that one party will change mind) in the interim.

        Thanks, but she definitely won't change her mind, she's very set on my property.

          No-one ever decides in advance to change his/her mind; but it happens! See several LZ threads re just this point.
