Tenancies and licences
- Type HQN Training
- Venue London
- Start 26 Jun 2019 10:00

In English law, there are some 15 different kinds of tenancy, all with different names, all with different rights and responsibilities and, since the Localism Act 2011, there are minimum two-year fixed-term flexible and affordable rent tenancies. Many people only have a licence (personal permission) to occupy. Confusion reigns and mistakes are all too common when creating, managing and terminating these occupation agreements.
This training will provide a clear understanding of the different kinds of tenancy/licence and how to minimise errors.
You will learn:
- What a ‘licence’ is and who should really have a tenancy
- Who should get what kind of agreement when first occupying
- The need for accurate and clear written and verbal agreements with occupiers
- About fixed-term/flexible and affordable rent tenancies
- About introductory/starter/assured shorthold/demoted tenancies; how and why reviews are essential
- How such tenancies default or convert into lifetime secure or assured tenancies
- The different rights and responsibilities that attach to different kinds of tenancy
- About common tenancy management issues – assignment, succession, abandonment
- How to properly end different kinds of tenancy or licence.
Who should attend?
Everyone involved in creating, managing or ending different kinds of tenancy or licence, including lettings, sign-up staff, tenancy management and enforcement, arrears staff, supported housing teams and tenancy sustainment staff.
