Read the Guide

Signable is a UK based provider of electronic signatures. Signable also offers an API version which allows organisations to embed signable e-signatures in their own products and processes.

An assured shorthold tenancy agreement (also known as an AST) allows a landlord to let a property to a tenant. The term of an assured shorthold tenancy agreement is usually 6 or 12 months and will usually convert to a rolling periodic tenancy at the end of the initial term. An assured shorthold tenancy can be for a bedsit, a house in multiple occupation (HMO) or a sole occupancy.

Signable do not offer an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement template. To create an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement with Signable you will need to upload your own tenancy agreement template. Moreover, you won't be able to make edits to the AST in Signable once the template has been uploaded. Updating a template will therefore require updating the document outside of Signable and then uploading it again.
