If the change is only to apply for a limited period the Letter Waiving a Provision of the Tenancy Agreement should be used.
The Variation Agreement allows the parties to delete a clause of the tenancy agreement and / or add a new clause or change the wording of a clause.
This Variation Agreement is not suitable for use where the parties wish to increase or decrease the term of the tenancy agreement or to increase or decrease the extent of the let property.
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.
