What Is The AST PDF?

Included in our popular landlord rental pack is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement PDF – this is the ready-to-go version of our tenancy agreement for England and Wales.

The tenancy agreement PDF was compiled by our company solicitor in compliance with the Housing Act of 1988. While you are free to customise the rental agreement with the included Microsoft Word version, for most landlords with standard properties the Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement PDF version will prove to be suitable.

Completing And Signing The Shorthold Tenancy Agreement PDF With Your New Tenants

The best way to complete the assured shorthold tenancy agreement PDF with your new tenants is to sit down with them in person and fill in each section by hand. It doesn’t take long and by going over the AST in person you are ensuring your tenants completely understand every aspect of the rental agreement.

Remember to print two copies of the blank tenancy agreement PDF, one for you, the landlord, and one for your tenants.

What Other Rental Documents Should I Use?

We highly recommend presenting your tenant with two other important documents, also included within our landlord pack. These are:

  • The printable landlord inventory template – this simple but very effective document allows landlords renting furnished properties to itemise possessions and effects in the property by name, location and condition. The completed document is then signed by both the landlord and the tenant.
  • The tenant advice sheet – while this is completely optional, we recommend using the tenant advice sheet to add a professional touch after you and your tenant have signed the Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement PDF. The tenant advice sheet can be completely customised, excellent for placing extra notes about the property, emergency contact numbers, what do do in certain situations, etc.

Signing The Tenancy Agreement England and Wales PDF

When you use the simple printable tenancy agreement PDF format included in the landlord pack, simply print the document twice and sit down with your tenant and the blank tenancy agreement form.

This allows you to start at the top, with both copies of the agreement, and go down section by section with your tenant. This method is much better than pre-filling any sections which the tenant may be able to say they did not notice when the signing took place.

It also gives both the landlord and the tenant the opportunity to discuss any aspect of the property rental contract. The tenancy agreement PDF will cover most rental situations, such as houses, flats and room rentals, but if you do need to make any additions or changes, see the section below.

The included assured shorthold tenancy agreement PDF has been completed by our company solicitor in full compliance of the housing act of 1988.
