3 Tenancy Agreement


The Tenancy Agreement is legally binding document between the Landlord and the Tenant. You should read the Agreement carefully and ensure you fully understand it.

The Agreement you sign is usually an Assured Shorthold which means you can stay in the property for the period of the Agreement (provided all the obligations are met).

The signing of the Tenancy Agreement will take place at our offices at: Medina House, 334 Silbury Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 2AE at a mutually acceptable time.

If the Landlord wishes to end the tenancy you will be given 2 month notice to vacate the premises when the Agreement expires.

You can only leave the property at the end of the period stated in the Agreement.

If you vacate the property early you will be responsible for the rental payments and utility/council tax bills for the remainder of the period.

Please note that if there is more than one Tenant, each Tenant will be liable for all sums due under the agreement and not just liable for a proportionate part.

4 Rent

All rents are normally payable in advance by standing order and due on the same day of the month.

5 Deposit

The deposit is the equivalent of 1.5 months’ rent. Marshalls Estate Agents are members of The Deposit Protection Service (DPS) where your deposit will be protected.

Prescribed Information about the DPS will be in the Tenancy Agreement.

The deposit and first month rent are payable prior to the day of occupation in cash or cleared funds.

6 Utility Supplies And Council Tax

As the Tenant you are liable for all services connected to the property: i.e. Electric, Water, Gas, Telephone, Council Tax and TV licence.

Although telephone points and TV aerial or cable points may be present there is no guarantee they are live and it is the tenants responsibility to make these active if required.

It is responsibility of the Tenant to inform the utility companies and Local Authority at both the beginning and end of the tenancy.

Rents are quoted exclusive of Council Tax and Utility bills and Tenants will be responsible for payments. Tenants should request a telephone service if required and must advise the Landlord or managing agent of the telephone number.

7 Insurance

The Landlord is responsible for insuring the property and any of his contents that are left in the property. You must insure your own belongings. The Landlord and Marshalls Estate Agents will not be liable for any loss suffered by the Tenant whatever the circumstances.
