5. Notes on Signing a Tenancy Agreement

Many landlords and tenants do not enter into detailed tenancy agreements when they lease or rent properties. Most simply use one of the standard tenancy agreement forms available. Some make oral agreements only. However, if either party subsequently disputes the tenancy agreement, the situation may be difficult to resolve as the obligations and right of landlord and tenant have not been clearly defined. Both parties are likely to suffer as a result.

In view of this, the Estate Agents Authority and the Consumer Council have complied Notes on Signing a Tenancy Agreement to assist landlord and tenants in understanding the importance of a tenancy agreement, the terms that should be included in it, and their obligations and rights.
