Tenancy agreement

A tenancy agreement is a contract between a tenant and a landlord.

It sets out the legal terms and conditions of tenancy. It can be written down or oral (ie a spoken agreement).

A tenancy can either be:

  • fixed-term (running for a set period of time)
  • periodic (running on a week-by-week or month-by-month basis)

A tenancy agreement should include:

  • the names of all people involved
  • the rental price and how it’s paid
  • information on how and when the rent will be reviewed
  • the deposit amount and how it will be protected
  • details of when the deposit can be fully or partly withheld (eg to repair damage you’ve caused)
  • the property address
  • the start and end date of the tenancy
  • any tenant or landlord obligations
  • an outline of bills you’re responsible for

It can also include information on:

  • whether the tenancy can be ended early and how this can be done
  • who’s responsible for minor repairs (other than those that the landlord is legally responsible for)
  • whether the property can be let to someone else (sublet) or have lodgers.
