This tenancy agreement has been approved by Anthony Gold Solicitors, leading landlord solicitors., leading experts in Landlord and Tenant Law...so you can be sure that it's legally binding and up to date.
If you want to let a furnished house or flat situated in England or Wales and include environment-friendly obligations to improve the energy efficiency of the property, this legally-binding document is all you need to put it in writing.
It can be used to create the standard type of letting called an 'Assured Shorthold Tenancy'.

An Assured Shorthold Tenancy is used where the landlord does not live at the property.
The tenancy agreement can be used for a single tenant who occupies the property on their own, or a group of tenants who jointly occupy the property and share responsibility.
This tenancy agreement form sets out the obligations of the landlord and the tenant(s), and comes with guidance notes showing clearly how to complete the form and create a legally binding tenancy agreement.
Your tenancy agreement will cover all the important issues, including:
Following new rules introduced in April 2007, the deposit for all new Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements must be placed within a government-authorised tenancy deposit scheme. The landlord must provide details of the chosen deposit scheme to the tenant within 14 days of receipt of the deposit. Landlords can notify their tenant of the deposit scheme by using our Tenancy Deposit Protection (Section 213 Notice). Links to the deposit schemes are contained within the download.
If the total amount of rent exceeds £100,000 per annum in England or £25,000 per annum in Wales, an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement cannot be created and this tenancy agreement legal form is not appropriate. If you wish to create a tenancy agreement whose rent will exceed £100,000 per annum in England or £25,000 per annum in Wales, you can use our Contractual Tenancy Agreement (Non-Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement).
