The tenancy trail

Some more notes:-

Although the words ‘landlord’ and ‘tenant’ (singular) are usually used here, there is normally no difference if there is more than one landlord or tenant

Sometimes this tenancy trail uses rather formal wording – if so this will be because this is the wording prescribed in an act of Parliament.

If your situation does not fall precisely into one of the categories set out in the tenancy trail, you should seek legal advice. There are sometimes ‘borderline’ situations which cannot easily be categorised.  For example, you can use our  Telephone Advice service, or if you are a Landlord Law member, ask a question in the forum.

The ‘back’ button may not always take you to the exact last page you visited – however, it will always take you to an appropriate point back up the tenancy trail
