Product description

Professional landlord or property owner?
This “Download Now” common law tenancy agreement creates a Contractual (Non–Assured Shorthold) Tenancy Agreement.

Common Law Tenancy Agreements in England are simple to create with Lawpack’s Contractual (Non-Assured Shorthold) Tenancy Agreement.

If you want to let a house or flat situated in England on a contractual non-assured shorthold tenancy, this common law tenancy agreement is all you need to put it in writing. This agreement is not suitable for use in Wales.

This agreement is drafted by Anthony Gold Solicitors, leading landlord solicitors.

A Contractual Tenancy Agreement may be used in any of the following tenancy situations where an assured shorthold tenancy should not be used:

  • where the annual rent exceeds £100,000;
  • where the premises being let is self-contained accommodation in a property that has been converted from a single property to multiple units (e.g. a house converted into flats), where the landlord lives;
  • where the property is not the tenant’s principal home.

In the above situations, an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement cannot be created.

If you want to create a Company Let where the tenant is a company, use Lawpack’s Company Let Tenancy Agreement. An Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement cannot be created for a company let.

This common law 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 contractual 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 legal form and create a legally-binding Contractual (Non-Assured Shorthold) Tenancy Agreement.

Your common law tenancy agreement will cover all the important issues, including:

  • Details of the tenant or tenants
  • 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
  • What happens at the end of the common law tenancy

How to complete this contractual (non-assured shorthold) tenancy agreement:

  • Complete the common law tenancy agreement form using the guidance provided.
  • Print two copies from your tenancy agreement download and make any manual deletions as necessary.
  • Have both copies signed by you and your tenant.
