New agreement  – agreement for tenants sharing a house or flat

Sharing a house should be fun but can be a difficult experience for some especially if you do not know your sharers very well. This is often the case with professional sharers and can apply to students too. Even people you think you know can be difficult to share with.

There is usually no agreement between the tenants and having talked to students (and their parents) and some student unions we have produced an agreement to be used by tenants who share a house (or flat) such as students, professionals or other sharers so that they can agree the arrangements between themselves. By having an agreement between tenants sharing at the beginning of the tenancy it aims to avoid possible problems between tenants later.
