Included in this service:

  • Assured shorthold tenancy agreement
    This document should be used by landlords of a residential property to create a fixed-term assured shorthold tenancy agreement. Specific clauses are included to cover gas, electrical and fire safety and building maintenance. It is suitable for both regular lettings and Houses in Multiple Occupancy (HMO). The document deals with a landlord's requirement to use a Government-authorised Tenancy Deposit Protection scheme. Please note that this document can only be used in England & Wales and the total rent payable should be less than £100,000 per year.
  • Landlord's demand for rent
    This document is suitable for use by a landlord of business or residential property to request the payment of rent due from the tenant under the terms of the tenancy. It should not be used as a demand for service charges, the contents of which must generally satisfy further conditions which can vary greatly from lease to lease.
  • Letter from landlord confirming status of tenant
    Many tenants, particularly those from overseas, require a letter from their landlord confirming that they have a tenancy. This can be important in opening a bank account, gaining employment, and even joining a local library. This document creates a letter from a landlord confirming the status of a tenant. To use this document, you will need to have details of the lease to hand.
  • Letter requesting references for a prospective tenant
    Use this letter to request a reference from a referee whose details have been supplied by a prospective tenant. The references should be obtained from a previous landlord, a previous secured lender, an employer, a bank or a building society.
  • Notice to tenant(s) of deposit protection scheme
    Use this document to meet your legal requirements after taking a deposit from a tenant. It tells tenants which deposit protection scheme is used and, together with the scheme documents that must be provided with this notice, gives them the 'prescribed information' required by law.

    Protect the deposit and give this notice and the scheme documents to the tenant within 30 days of the tenant paying the deposit. At the same time, you should also send it (together with the scheme documents) to anyone who paid the deposit for the tenant and, in order to avoid any dispute, the tenant's guarantors (if any). This document is suitable for tenancies in England & Wales.

  • Notice under section 21 of the Housing Act 1988
    This document is the required notice under section 21 of the Housing Act 1988. It is served on a property owner's tenant(s), where an assured shorthold tenancy has been granted and possession is required. It should be noted that it is a criminal offence to evict a tenant of residential property without a court order. This document can only be used in England & Wales.
