EXPLANATORY NOTES FOR THE RESIDENTIAL LEASE AGREEMENT TO WHICH THE CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT DOES NOT APPLY

This agreement:

  • is legally substantive;
  • is bordered;
  • has pages numbered;
  • is fully justified;
  • is typed up using Tahoma font, size 10;
  • has been meticulously spell-checked;
  • is extremely professional in its appearance;
  • has several drafting notes therein; and
  • can be printed onto 6 A4 pages. (In the interests of the environment, it is suggested that the agreement rather be printed back to back on 3 pages.)

This agreement is drafted in favour of the lessor (the landlord). It is, however, fair and equitable to the lessee.

This agreement should be used in instances where a landlord wishes to lease a town-house, flat, garden cottage and such like to a lessee on a once-off basis, i.e. such leasing arrangement must not be as part of a rental business undertaking operated by the landlord. The landlord is advised to do a credit check on the lessee and to obtain at least three cogent references.

Please do not use this lease agreement, if the residential property is being leased pursuant to a rental business conducted by the landlord, and where such residential property is being leased to a “consumer” as defined in the Consumer Protection Act. There are CPA residential leases available on this site for CPA residential letting.
