Fixed-term or periodic standard occupation contract

About this service

On 1 December 2022, assured shorthold tenancies were abolished in Wales due to the Renting Homes (Wales) Act. They have been replaced by standard occupation contracts.

Use this document to create either a fixed-term or a periodic standard occupation contract (also known as a written statement). It contains all the required terms and necessary explanatory information.

It's broadly based on the Welsh Assembly's model written statement, but with extra clauses and options, including:

  • Break clauses
  • How the contract-holder (i.e. tenant) should use, maintain and secure the property
  • Access rights during the last 2 months of the contract (e.g. for viewings)
  • What the contract-holder must do when the contract ends, including what happens to any property left behind
  • What happens if the property is destroyed or becomes uninhabitable
  • An inventory
  • A guarantee

  • This document can be used by a landlord operating as a business entity, or by up to 4 joint landlords (who are individuals).

    Note that this document can't be used for:

    • A fixed-term lasting 7 years or more
    • Lettings where the landlord is a registered charity, registered social landlord, local authority or other form of community landlord
    • Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)
    • Other types of standard contracts (e.g. supported, introductory or prohibited standard contracts)
    • Agricultural land
    • Holiday or short-term lets
    • Lets where the landlord is sharing the property
    • Social housing, care institutions, asylum seekers, homeless people, employees (where the landlord is the employer) or students (where the landlord is a university or college)
