A landlords guide to Tenancy Agreements
A tenancy agreement sets out the legal terms and conditions between a tenant and a landlord. It can be a formal documentation, or it can be a spoken agreement (this form of agreement is not advisable).
A tenancy agreement can either be:
1.Fixed-term (running for a set period of time)
2.Periodic (running on a week-by-week or month-by-month basis)
Even if a tenancy agreement is not in place, both tenants and landlords have certain rights and responsibilities, which must be abided by.

If you need to make any changes to your contract, then the landlord and the tenant will need to agree to an amendment contract. This can be useful for things such as allowing pets in the property.

If the agreement needs to be transferred to a different party, or a joint tenancy agreement needs to be changed to a single tenancy agreement for example, then a transfer contract will need to be issued.
