Professional landlord or property owner? Concerned about energy efficiency and protecting the environment?

This 'Download Now' environment-friendly tenancy agreement legal form will take away the difficulty of creating an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement for a furnished property that includes energy efficiency provisions.

Tenancy Agreements that enshrine the importance of energy efficiency in the home are simple to create with Lawpack’s Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement for a furnished property.

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'.

This specially drafted ‘green’ tenancy agreement includes clauses by which both the landlord and tenant agree to take measures to improve energy efficiency in the property, in order to save money and protect the environment, including clauses outlining that:

  • The tenant uses utilities and resources provided in the property, or which they bring into the property, in an energy efficient manner.
  • The tenant doesn't do anything to reduce the rating awarded to the property by an assessor inspecting the property in accordance with the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007.
  • During the tenancy all energy-efficient bulbs are replaced with those of a similar type and not with incandescent light bulbs.
  • The tenant must recycle all waste generated within the property.

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:

  • Details of the rent amount and frequency of rent payments.
  • Deposit amount.
  • Tenant's obligation to keep the property in good condition.
  • Tenant's obligation to pay service bills and council tax.
  • Tenant's obligation to not keep pets.
  • Landlord's obligation to keep the property in repair.
  • Landlord's obligation to insure the property.
  • Landlord’s and tenant’s obligations towards energy efficiency and environmental protection
  • What happens at the end of the tenancy.

How to complete this tenancy agreement

  • Complete the tenancy agreement form online using the guidance provided.
  • Print two copies from your tenancy agreement download.
  • Have both copies signed by you and your tenant.
  • Give one signed copy to your tenant.

Tenancy deposits

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.

Legal note

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).
