Written Statement of Terms - Verbal Tenancy

If there is no written tenancy agreement, a tenant under an assured shorthold tenancy may, by notice in writing, require the landlord to provide a written statement of any term of the tenancy which is not evidenced in writing [section 20A Housing Act 1988]. A failure to provide such a written statement within 28 days is a criminal offence [section 20A(4)]. 

The statement must contain certain prescribed information as listed in that section.

This template is a suitable form for the purpose of providing a written statement of the terms. It is in Rich Text Format (RTF) so will work on all word processors including Microsoft Word.
