Apartment buildings in Docklands

To give renters greater long-term security, the Government is making long-term leases a reality.

Standard long-term agreement

A new optional standard long-term lease agreement available for landlords and tenants wishing to enter into arrangements of more than 5 years.

  • The new standard long-term lease agreement will be developed in consultation with key stakeholders during 2017. It will include terms that are specifically tailored to a longer term agreement, which may include:
  • allowing tenants to install fixtures (minor non-structural alterations)
  • revised notice periods for entry of rented premises and inspections
  • different notice periods for termination at the end of a long-term tenancy.

Connecting landlords and tenants

An online matching service to connect landlords and tenants interested in a long-term lease.
