Get started

A How to Rent letter is a summary of all of the key information that your new tenant will need to be aware of before they begin their tenancy at your property. The How to Rent letter is an important way to be sure that your tenant is aware of everything that they need to know before their tenancy begins and they move into the property.


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 the move in date and the deposit information. You will also have the opportunity to upload all of the necessary documents such as Property Ombudsman information, a how to rent pack and gas and electricity certificates.

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 new tenant(s) who is moving into the property.

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 how to rent letter and attached documents 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!
