SignNow is a cloud-based provider of electronic signature technology, developed in the United States. The company's software-as-a-service platform enables individuals and businesses to sign, and manage documents from any computer.
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.
SignNow do not offer an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement template. To create an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement with SignNow you will need to upload your own tenancy agreement template. Moreover, you won't be able to make edits to the AST in SignNow once the template has been uploaded. Updating a template will therefore require updating the document outside of SignNow and then uploading it again.
Legislate allows you to create an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement which are tailored to your needs. Legislate templates are lawyer-approved and can be tailored to your specific requirements by answering simple questions.
Using an e-signature service like SignNow means you need to source reliable AST templates, tailor them to your requirements with a lawyer and then circulate them with the other side for review and e-signature. Legislate replaces all these steps and tools with a single end-to-end contract management platform which offers a library of lawyer-approved templates which can be customised to your situation. Simply select the contract you would like to create, set the terms and invite parties for e-signature, directly within Legislate.
