Rent Book

There are some legal documents which you must provide to your tenants. Failure to provide certain documents to your tenants can result in prosecution and a hefty fine.

The items which you saw when you viewed the property may not necessarily all be included with the letting. Find out if the property is furnished or unfurnished. There is no legal definition of what "furnished" means, so check with the landlord or agent what exactly is included in the property. If you have your own furnishings that you wish to use, you may have to check that the landlord is happy to move existing items out of the property while you're living there.

Legally, your landlord or the agent must give you a rent book. There is certain information which must be contained in this document, including your basic rights and obligations. If you don't get a rent book, you can complain to your local council.

Moving house is a stressful experience. Being well organised can help to minimise the difficulties you may encounter.

Many landlords will expect that you pay rent by standing order or direct debit, while others will allow you to make payments in cash. Whichever way you pay your rent, it’s essential that you keep records of all payments and have your rent book completed.
