Did you know:
- That many clauses in tenancy agreements will be unenforceable due to the ‘unfair terms’ rules
- That there will be other rules that will apply whether or not they are in your tenancy agreement – for example, the landlords statutory repairing obligations
- That although you can amend the terms of a tenancy by agreement between the landlord and tenants, you cannot change the identity of the tenants save by granting a new tenancy agreement
- That if you want to give the occupiers of your property a license rather than a tenancy, it’s not enough to write this on the agreement that they sign (and that many so-called licenses are actually tenancies)
There is a lot to learn about tenancy agreements – but how and where can you do this?
A new course
As I provide our own tenancy agreements through Landlord Law, I have learned a thing or two about them over the years. I have used this knowledge to create a unique course, my Complete Tenancy Agreements Course.
It looks first (in Part 1) at the difference between tenancies and licenses, oral tenancies and then (in Part 2) goes through all the different tenancy types (in the private sector).
Part 3 looks at why tenancy agreements can be misleading, and Part 4 looks at shared properties. Parts 5 and 6 look at tenancy agreement clauses, and Part 7, the final part, looks at creating and amending tenancy agreements.
I doubt whether there is a more comprehensive tenancy agreements course anywhere.
