Having a full and comprehensive tenancy agreement is just as important as finding the right tenant. It will set out the terms of the tenancy and include important details each party's responsibilities in a clear, concise and transparent way. The tenancy agreement may also be called upon should a dispute arise at the end of the tenancy. It is therefore vital that the agreement covers every aspect of the tenancy.
Using an NLA approved tenancy agreement ensures that you are providing your tenants with an up-to-date and robust agreement drawn from best practice. It shows that you are a professional landlord and proud to be an NLA member.
With over 50 Acts of Parliament and more than 70 sets of regulations governing the private rented sector, it is important that you follow the correct legal procedure throughout the life cycle of a tenancy.
