Residential Lettings – A tenancy agreement is a contract between a landlord and a tenant. The agreement gives certain rights to both landlord and tenant, ie. the tenant’s right to occupy the accommodation and the landlord’s right to receive rent for letting the accommodation.
The landlord and the tenant may have made arrangements about the tenancy, and these will be part of the tenancy agreement as long as they do not conflict with law. Both landlord and tenant have rights and responsibilities given by law.
The tenancy agreement can give more than statutory rights, but cannot give less than statutory rights. If a term in the tenancy agreement gives either the landlord or the tenant less than your statutory rights, that term cannot be enforced. These are rights given by law or arrangements established by custom and practice.
We have experience with the preparation of tenancy agreements tailored to specific requirements.
