Making your rental contract easy to understand

Rental contracts can be very complicated, with a lot of legal language or jargon that is hard to understand. This can make it difficult to know what you are agreeing to when renting a property.

A clear, simple tenancy agreement, like the one from RentalDocs, is much easier to understand and can help avoid any confusion or misunderstandings. This agreement is also legally binding in England and Wales, so you can be confident that your rights are protected.

There are several advantages to utilising a straightforward and simple tenancy agreement form, including:

  • It is easier to understand than a complicated rental contract
  • It is still legally binding in England and Wales
  • It can help avoid any confusion or misunderstandings about the terms of your rental agreement
  • Your tenant will find things easier to understand when you go over the rental contract with them before signing

If you are just getting started in the buy-to-let market or an experienced landlord, using a simple tenancy agreement template can help ensure that all parties understand the terms of their rental arrangement and are protected under the law.

Our tenancy agreement template comes in both Word Doc and PDF formats, making it easy to either print and use, or make changes suited to your property.

Customising the tenancy agreement

Customising our simple tenancy agreement allows you to make changes that are specific to your property, which can be extremely helpful if you have unique features or requirements.

For example, if you need to include details about road access to the property, the use of outbuildings or land, or a shared garden, customising the tenancy agreement ensures that all of this information is included in the contract.

This can save a lot of time and hassle down the road, as well as prevent any potential disputes between landlord and tenant.

RentalDocs offers a simple tenancy agreement template Word Doc that can be easily customised to suit your needs. The template is suitable for both England and Wales, so regardless of where your property is located, you can use RentalDocs to create a rental contract that meets your specific requirements.
