You can make your own tenancy agreement but you need to make sure that it is up-to-date with the law and in particular does not contain illegal clauses. The Tenant Fees Act 2019 made certain tenancy payments illegal such as cleaning fees. Including one of these clauses in your tenancy agreement can lead to a £5,000 fine.

When creating your own tenancy agreement, it is also important to check:

  • Which tenancy agreement you need or whether a licence is more appropriate
  • If you understand your landlord obligations
  • Are aware of the other documents you will need to generate during the lifecycle of the tenancy
