    Tenancy agreement - date

    I recently had a tenant who was concerned that the tenancy agreement had a date on it several days prior to signing because I had prepared it in advance. I just wondered whether there were any legal implications for having an earlier date on the tenancy agreement?

    Date of signature or the date of the commencement of the tenancy?

    Obviously the date of typing is irrelevant otherwise 'lawpack' and similar agrements would have a date months or years earlier!

      Its actually the date of production of the tenancy agreement. I put a separate date on when the agreement is signed and the agreement begins.

        So that's okay then!
        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.

          Yes, fine. The date that the contract is signed/agreed can be an earlier date to when the fixed term tenancy begins. As from the date the contract is signed/agreed it is binding on both parties.

            There seems however little point in having any other date on a contract than the date of signing and the date(s) of the tenancy.
