Letter Waiving a Provision of the Tenancy Agreement
This Letter Waiving a Provision of the Tenancy Agreement records the Landlord’s agreement that a particular term of the tenancy agreement will not apply to the Tenant.
The Letter makes reference to the relevant clause of the tenancy agreement and gives details of the concession the Landlord has agreed to make. One example of a situation where such a letter may be required is where the tenancy agreement provides for rent to be paid monthly but the Landlord agrees that the Tenant may pay weekly. Another example is where the tenancy agreement prohibits the tenant from keeping a pet at the property but the Landlord waives this provision for a particular Tenant.
If the Landlord and Tenant wish to make a permanent change to a provision of the tenancy agreement it might be more appropriate to use the Variation Agreement.
Under the Tenant Fees Act 2019, landlords in England cannot charge a tenant more than £50 (inclusive of VAT) for agreeing to alter tenancy agreements caught by this act. In some circumstances it may be appropriate for this to be higher but such cost must be reasonable and a landlord must be able to provide written evidence (invoices/receipts) which show that these costs are reasonable.
Under the Renting Homes (Fees etc.) (Wales) Act 2019, landlords and/or letting agents in Wales are prohibited from charging a fee to amend an assured shorthold tenancy agreement.
