An introduction to Tenancy Renewal Letters

When a fixed term tenancy ends, you and your tenant may wish to continue the tenancy by renewing the lease for another fixed term - as opposed to allowing it to become a periodic tenancy.

The first step is to set the terms of the letter, using the terms tab. You will be asked to answer a few simple questions regarding both the previous tenancy and the new tenancy, as will as uploading the previous tenancy agreement.

Legislate Terms Tab


Once you have saved the first draft, a preview will be ready to review under the preview tab.

Next, you will need to add your tenants whose tenancy is being renewed.


Legislate People Tab


Your tenant will be sent an email, notifying them that you have invited them to collaborate on Legislate. They can create an account and login to preview the letter and be sure that they understand what the increase in rent is and from when it will start.


Both you and your tenant can use the activity tab to communicate with one another. For example, if your tenant has any questions regarding the letter you have sent them, this is a good place to ask.


Legislate Activity Tab

You will also be notified by email if any messages are sent through the activity tab, so there is no need to worry about being out of the loop of communication.


Both parties are now able to sign the letter!
