ASSURED SHORTHOLD TENANCY AGREEMENT

The AST is the cornerstone of all buy to let documentation. It grants a tenant the right to live in a domestic property for a fixed period of time (normally six months or a year) after which the tenancy will continue on a one month rolling basis until notice to quit is served by either party.

The tenants must be individual people. This agreement must not be used where the tenants are companies or a partnership.

Please note that the landlord must serve at least two months notice on his tenant to quit even if the parties agree that the tenancy will end on 31st December 2008. In this case notice must be served by 31st October 2008. If notice is served on the 3rd November 2008 then the tenancy will officially expire on the 31st January 2009.

This AST is self explanatory and comprehensive. You will need to make sure that you fill in all the details in clause 1 as this covers the following key terms:

   parties to the agreement (ensure all the tenants for the property are included here)
   the date the agreement is entered into
   address of the property (make sure you remember to specify whether it is a flat or house by deleting the appropriate word)
   the term of the rental period (again remember to make sure you delete the wording you do not require)
   the amount of the rent and when it must be paid
   the amount of the deposit to be paid
   if the property is to be furnished then you should provide an inventory of all the propertys contents and ask the tenant to sign the inventory so he agrees with it. Once the inventory is signed then attach the inventory by staple behind the signed tenancy agreement. If the property is being let unfurnished then you do not need to attach an inventory.

All landlords must note that from 6 April 2007, all landlords and letting agents who take deposits for Assured Shorthold Tenancies in England and Wales must join a Government authorised tenancy deposit protection scheme.  The purpose of these schemes is to protect tenants deposits from being taken by unscrupulous landlords.



Within 14 days of receiving the deposit, the landlord must provide the tenant with details of the scheme chosen by him to safeguard the deposit. Details of the 3 schemes and further information can be found at:



    

The Deposit Protection Service (The DPS) at www.depositprotection.com 
    Tenancy Deposit Solutions Ltd (TDSL) at www.mydeposits.co.uk 
    The Dispute Service (TDS) at www.thedisputeservice.co.uk 
(N.B. The Dispute Service has special clauses which it requires in its members' tenancy agreements, which our Tenancy Agreement does not include. However, these are available to members from the Dispute Service and can be appended to the Tenancy Agreement.)

The Prescribed Information which needs to be provided is the name, address, telephone number, email address and any fax number of the scheme administrator. This Prescribed Information needs to be provided in a form of signed written certificate with the Landlord confirming that the contents of this certificate are true to the best of his knowledge.



Finally we recommend that the Tenancy Agreement (together with inventory if applicable) is prepared in duplicate and both copies should be signed by all parties, with both the landlord and tenant retaining a copy.
