How to make a Tenant's agreement to exclude security of tenure

For use in England and Wales only.

This declaration should be used in response to receiving a landlord's notice to exclude security of tenure. Security of tenure is the right of a tenant to occupy a property after the lease expires. A commercial tenant should use this agreement to state they understand the implications of entering a lease without security of tenure. There are two ways to respond to the landlord's notice, either by way of a simple declaration or statutory declaration. The type of declaration chosen will depend on the time left remaining before a tenant has to commit to the lease. This declaration excludes the provisions of sections 24 to 28 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.

Use this tenant's agreement to exclude security of tenure:

  • for a lease of business premises where security of tenure is not given
  • where a landlord's warning notice has been served
  • when either a tenant's simple declaration or statutory declaration is required

For more information, read Security of tenure.

This tenant's agreement covers:

  • the required legal information in response to the landlord's warning notice for a tenant's simple declaration or a statutory declaration

Ask a lawyer:

  • if there are multiple landlords or tenants
  • for advice where a tenant needs urgent access to the property
  • where there is a guarantor under the lease
  • for property located in Scotland

This tenant's simple and statutory declaration is governed by the law of England and Wales.
