Letter to the landlord asking for confirmation of tenancy when you don't have a written tenancy agreement

If you do not have a written tenancy agreement, you as the tenant still have a right under the Housing Act 1996 for written confirmation of the key details of your tenancy from your landlord.

You will need to submit a written request to your landlord asking them to confirm the key details of your tenancy. Your landlord will need to reply in writing within 28 days following this letter, as detailed in the Section 20A of the Housing Act 1988.

Reference : Written confirmation of tenancy agreement

Dear Mr & Mrs Landlord,

I am writing to ask you to provide to me in writing, confirmation about the tenancy at **rented property address**. Please can you respond to me as soon as possible and no later than 28 days from the date of this letter to confirm the following details about my tenancy: -

  • The rent payable and the dates on which rent is payable
  • The date on which the tenancy began
  • Details of any rent review clause
  • The length of any fixed term

Please note that you have a responsibility to provide written confirmation of the above, in accordance with the Section 20A of the Housing Act 1988.

I think that it is important for me going forward that I understand my obligations as a tenant and I would like to thank you in advanced for providing clarity to me.

I look forward to hearing from you soon regarding these matters.

Yours faithfully,
