    Must signature(s) on Tenancy agreement be dated?

    Sorry if this is a naive qiestion... LL has given me a tenancy agreement to sign, with the effective date printed at the top. LL has signed but not indicated the date of her signature. There is no blank space for the date by where I am to sign. Does it matter whether or not there is no handwritten date by one or either of our signatures?

    No need for a date.
    If you want to add one, just put it underneath your signature.
    Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

      I agree with thesaint, the tenanc agreement does not even have to be written if you are renting for less than 3 years. HOWEVER, just in case there is some ulterior motive for not including dates, I would definately add a date - and of course, take a copy of the signed contract BEFORE returning it.

      I may be being paranoid, but it will cost nothing - just in case.

          Do you mean that the document is in fact already dated?

            by templar018080
            Indeed, the contact makes a provision to allow inspections, however, does not specify that the landlord may sue for financial compensation in the event that I refuse one. Would a landlord be brave enough to even insert a clause for monetary compensation or even attempt to sue given the Tenant Fee Act...

            Good evening,

            I'm a tenant with an amicable relationship with my agent and landlord.

            I've been notified that the landlord and agent would like to inspect the premises at the same time together. (Just a routine inspection.) My question - is there currently anything in the...

            I think that knowing I was responsible for the energy used from the date I moved in I would not just have accepted that no-one knows where the mater cupboard key is. I would have got it open somehow. The ones in my flats can be opened with a flathead screwdriver....

            by Farrella
            The previous tenant left during lockdown and closed his gas account based on an estimated reading that was too low. I did not realise this until 6 months afterwards as I never took a reading when I moved in, assuming everything was correct (oops). Then the gas company took a reading 6 months later...

            As Artful says, the tenants notice is invalid as its served during the fixed term, (unless you have a contractual periodic tenancy), so you can't legally rely on them moving out and would have no recourse if the changed their minds and stayed on.

            New tenants would likely sue you for their...

            Hello,

            I am a landlord with a tenancy fixed term ending in March. My tenants emailed to say they will be leaving, giving two month notice.

            I will be marketing the property to find new tenants. How do I know that am I protected from the event of the tenants staying beyond...

            I do fully understand that it is not in yet, but....... what is the EPC ? If a D or E what would it take to bring it up to a C ? Planning ahead and all that.

            I’m looking at buying another property to rent out. The one I’m looking at has a tenant in situ. I have seen a copy of the AST and payments to the agents.
            Anyone have any experience of this please ?...

            Ask tenant (yes tenant) when they 1st moved in. Don't trust agent, vendor, solicitor on this.

            If early enough it won't be an AST regardless of paperwork, do no s21.

            I did it, but it was student let, therefore I knew they'd not been there a year.

            Yes, I have done this.

            I wouldn't do it now though, unless the seller could provide a document signed by the tenant confirming that all of the things that should have been done at the start and during the tenancy had actually been done.
            And, if I were the tenant, I wouldn't sign such...
