Illustrative examples of a Periodic Standard Contract and Secure Contract.

These illustrative contracts were prepared by the Law Commission for information only. They must not be used as the basis for a tenancy agreement. The contracts are probably longer than many current tenancy agreements. This is because they incorporate all the relevant law under the Renting Homes proposals that both parties to the contract should need for a successful tenancy. Broadly, the standard contract would replace the assured shorthold tenancy and the secure contract would replace assured and secure tenancies.
