Our Assured Shorthold tenancy agreements are professionally prepared to include all necessary legal clauses, information relating to the Tenancy Deposit Regulations (TDS) and the mandatory statutory Prescribed Information. Our Tenancy Agreements are regularly checked and updated by our Legal Advisors in order to comply with any new regulations that come into force.
The agreement is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement, which means that the tenant can stay in the property for the period of the lease, provided they meet all the obligations of the tenancy with an initial minimum term of six months.
If the landlord wishes to end the tenancy at or after six months, we will serve what is known as a Section 21 Notice, which gives the tenant two months’ notice before the tenant has to leave the property.
Due to the terms of the agreement, the tenant is contracted to remain at the property until the end of the period stated in the agreement. Should the tenant decide to leave at the end of the period stated in the agreement, the tenant must notify us in writing, giving a minimum of one month’s notice prior to the end of the period.
Should the tenant vacate the property prior to the end of the contracted period, whether or not the tenant gives a month’s notice the tenant will be liable for all rent payments due until the end of the contracted period, or until we are able to find a replacement tenant. The tenant will also be liable for the landlord’s re-letting fee for the new tenancy.
Every adult that moves into the property (eighteen years old and above) must be named on, and must sign the tenancy agreement.
It will be a breach of the agreement should anybody else move into the property during the tenancy without express written permission from the landlord. Should permission be granted, a new tenancy agreement will be drafted and must be signed by all adults and a further fee is payable.
"A few weeks ago a family tragedy placed me in a position where I urgently needed to find rental accommodation for myself and my wife. I therefore approached a number of Estate Agents, some were good and others were extremely rude and unhelpful. For example one of them failed to appreciate that if you are prepared to pay 2 years rent in advance, one's gross annual income is largely irrelevant. Another grilled me on my wife's disability implying that her disability might prevent me from gaining the tenancy I wanted (against the law by the way). Now the good - From start to finish Cherwell Property staff acted with a high standard of professionalism and consideration. They fully appreciated my wife's disability imposed limitations on my time and availability. Thank you Chris for visiting my home with important documentation. I was kept fully informed as the search for a property continued and WITHIN 10 DAYS I was given the keys to exactly the type of property I wanted. So, a big thank you to all the staff of Cherwell Property and may you attain the future success you so richly deserve."
