Using OpenRent's contract
Our tenancy agreement is created as part of the Rent Now process, and we do not recommend using the contract without the rest of Rent Now taking place.
We advise this for the following reasons:
- We cannot ensure the validity of the AST or the tenancy itself if the Rent Now process is not followed
- The contract is based on OpenRent handing the initial funds, protecting the deposit within the DPS and issuing prescribed information, amongst other parts of the Rent Now process. We cannot vouch for the legality of the contract or its enforceability in court if these procedures are not managed by OpenRent
Rent Now is a tenancy set up service which provides landlords and tenants with peace of mind that every step of a tenancy creation is followed to the best possible practice. You can find out more about it here:
