The tenants have occupied the property for more than five years and have had no tenancy agreement. The tenants have now agreed to enter into a one year tenancy agreement.We have a simple document which they have agreed to but prior to signing we would like advice on the main point - will be able to obtain possession at the end of the term should we wish to do so.If you are able to advice, could you please let us have the best email adress to sent the draft tenancy agreement to.We have joined your priority service this morning as this is urgent.Thank you.

Please confirm safe receipt.
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Seems fine in the main, but you havent said what happens in the event of a breach.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

This agreement has been drafted to be a Tenant friendly document. It has now become important to now have an agreement in place. Should there be any "hard clauses", the tenants may be prepared to sign.The only real consideration is whether the lack of the breach clause could affect the Landlord's right to possession at the end of the agreement. Could you please advise if the Landlord's position in any possession hearing is likely to be weakened by the omission of a "breach clause" in the agreement.Thank you.
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
It just means if the tenant breaches the agreement you can't really take action until the end of the tenancy. You may be able to use S.8 notice.
Does that clarify?

Thank you.If we could persuade the Tenants to add a clause would the following protect the position?The Landlord shall be entitled to terminate this agreement if :
i. any installment of the rent is not received in full within 14 days of becoming due
ii. if the Tenant fails to comply with any of the Tenants obligations.Thank you again.
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Yes you could do that.
Does that help?
