I have recently (Saturday) re-let on a 12 monthh AST to the same tenant. I have been very fortunate with the present tenant after a real bad un.

In advance of the signing of the new agreement (same as previous save for 12 months instead of 6) I sent two copies of all documents for review and signatures where required - leaving the final signature to be in the presence of a witness who would also sign on the day.

All docs were signed by my tenant in advance, one copy retained by the tenant and one by me.

It was a simple and painless process and there can be no doubt that the tenant has received the prescribed information.

Later the same day I re-registered the deposit (the original) paid my fee and a few minutes later the certificate arrived electronically. Two copies of the certificate were sent to the Tenant - one to be retained and the other returned to me with the Tenant's signature appended.

Again all painless.

Noting the heavy penalty meeted out by the court for what I consider to be a minor breach of the regulations it is vitally important that signatures are required for everything now.

We must be ahead and stay ahead of the game in these matters.
