What is tenancy variation?
A tenancy variation is where one or more terms of your tenancy agreement are changed following a review. It could be very minor, for example; changing the order of the tenancy agreement, or it could be to include new terms. It is not a new tenancy agreement.
Why are we varying your tenancy agreement?
We want to improve your tenancy agreement by making it easier to understand and to reflect current law, up to date policies and best practice. We want to make sure that the agreement is simple for you to understand tenancy breaches and your rights and responsibilities as a tenant.
To ensure every tenant has the same rights and responsibilities, we reviewed all bpha’s tenancy agreements. On doing so we found many of the agreements were out of date and needed updating to reflect legal changes.
The Housing and Planning Act 2016 has brought about changes that bpha wanted to include to benefit our tenants.
The varied tenancy
To make the agreement clearer, we have changed the format, removed some of the legal terminology and simplified the language wherever we can.
We have also included additional useful information on:
- Laminate flooring
- Gardens and tress
- Tenancy fraud
- Tenant identity
