Your Tenancy Agreement

Unipol has developed its own tenancy agreements in consultation with landlords and student tenants It is important to remember that the tenancy agreement you sign becomes legally binding and is a complex legal contract. We are aware that they can be confusing and difficult to understand. That is why we have provided guidance and information on what to expect and what things mean.

What is a Tenancy Agreement?

The tenancy agreement is the contract you read and sign when you have found a property you want to move into. All landlords should provide you with time to read your tenancy agreement before you sign it. You can ask questions and query any parts that you don’t understand.

Which Tenancy to Choose? 

Unipol has provided four types of tenancy agreement:

  • Assured Shorthold Tenancy for Joint Tenancies
  • Assured Shorthold Tenancy for Self-Contained Properties
  • Assured Shorthold tenancy for Single Rooms in Shared Properties
  • Agreement for Owner Occupiers and 'Home Stay' (please note this cannot be customised online at present)

Of these, the Assured Shorthold Tenancy for self-contained properties is likely to be more relevant for students with families and for couples.
