How to Rent guide

The How to Rent guide is the document which must be issued to all new tenants.

One of your key legal responsibilities as a landlord is providing your tenants with a current copy of the How to Rent guide at the start of a tenancy. 

TenancyPod can help you with this, leaving you one less thing to worry about.

The guide, published by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, provides all the information your tenants need on how to rent privately.

It covers the whole process of renting a house or flat on an assured shorthold tenancy, including rights and responsibilities, guidance on what happens at the end of the tenancy and what to do if something goes wrong.

The guide is best viewed online, as it contains hyperlinks.

Tenants already on a fixed term tenancy do not require a new version of the guide; however, brand new tenants or those renewing a tenancy do require the update.

TenancyPod is the perfect solution for property protection and will always keep you updated on any changes to legislation or compliance.
