When creating a student tenancy agreement, it is important that you and your tenant(s) are clear on the scope of your agreement. What better way to ensure your tenants understand the terms of their contracts than to have it readily accessible on their phone?


This short tutorial will explain how you can create a student tenancy agreement within minutes on Legislate.


The first step is to set the terms of the agreement. Legislate’s terms are thorough, robust and fair ensuring you, and your tenant, have adequate protection.

You will now need to specify the parties to the agreement. This can include a letting agent on behalf of a landlord and guarantors on behalf of the student can also be invited to sign.

Once invited, the parties will be sent an email notifying them of the agreement and inviting them to view it on the platform. When multiple parties are involved in signing (as is common in student tenancy agreements) distributing your contracts online will save you significant time.


Parties can also use the Activity Tab to communicate with each other, keeping all of your communications in one place.

Both parties are then invited to sign the contract.
