    Re your heading: sorry to be pedantic, but do you mean:
    a. Assured Tenancy [ie Standard Assured Tenancy]; or
    b. Assured Shorthold Tenancy?

        thanks rigsby. That looks like good advice but there is a slight problem registering as the landlord is actually a company name which is not possible to register with (it asks for a 1st name and surname.)

        Let me try a slightly different question. Can i use the assured shorthold tenancy agreement that i have from 5 years ago or has there been any significant changes that would necessitate getting a current form?

          A. You first stated "20 years ago".
          B. Lots of changes since 1987. Not many since 2002.

            See discussion on Lawpack tenancy agreement

            In my experience I have found the Lawpack agreement clear and easy to understand by both the landlord and tenant.

            It is available in a pack from leading stationers and the guidance notes in that pack are invaluable and will bring you up to date with current requirements.

            I have not read an alternative downloadable AST that is so concise and fair to both parties.

            Any advice or suggestions given in my posts are intended for guidance only and not a substitute for completing full searches on this forum, having regard to the advice of others, or seeking appropriate professional opinion.
            Without Plain English Codes of Practice and easy to complete Prescribed Forms the current law is too complex and is thus neither fair to good tenants nor good landlords.

              What about getting them to surrender existing tenancy and then signing a new one? Would that work?...

              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 ?...

              by asez
              Hello,

              I'm trying to end my tenancy early due to a relationship breakdown with my housemate, hostility, bullying and my items going missing. There's currently four of us on the agreement which I'm trying to leave. I haven't lived there, apart from around 15 days(when the housemate was away)...

              I have a mobile home next to my property. Do I qualify for the rent a room scheme if I rent out the mobile home but the occupant must use the shower and washing facilities in my house i.e. so that the mobile home is not a separate unit of accommodation? There is a provision by the council that it...

              It's almost impossible to reset the tenancy with a new agreement.
              The buyer will inherit the previous tenancy at the same point that they're able to let the property on the new agreement, so any new tenancy is going to be a follow on tenancy.
              So things that need to be done at the very start...

              You're really going to struggle with that not being a tenancy.
              If the tenant can lock the door to exclude you, and they could wash in a sink, that's likely to be a dwelling house.

              I have a basic understanding of regulated tenancy. I'm looking to buy a property with a tenant in situ on a regulated tenancy. In the real world, what are the pros and cons? Is there anyone with any experience?

              How basic is your understanding?

              From your other thread you are seeing a broker about a BTL mortgage. I think you will struggle to secure a BTL mortgage against a property with a Regulated Tenancy in place....
