My property is let to students until the end of June 2021. The students are thinking of staying on an extra year until June 2022 so I would need to get a contract ASAP however the tenancy renewal option will only let me do it 2 months in advance of the current tenancy agreement and obviously I need this sooner as to tie them to the extra year because the student market is only from November-February and if they change their minds later I would be left without tenants for that academic year. Please could you advise? They’d need to be legally bound to a contract until June 2022.
You could use the free Government tenancy agreement or joint the NRLA and use their model agreement. Don’t forget that if you are issuing a replacement tenancy then some other documents need to be re-served.
