About this document
Excluding security of tenure used to be a laborious task, achieved by joint court application. Under the new procedure the landlord must serve a notice on the tenant at least 14 days before the proposed tenancy is entered into or before there is a binding lease agreement. All the tenant need to do is making a simple declaration to say he has received and read the warning notice from the landlord and has accepted the consequences of entering into a lease agreement which includes a provision to exclude security of tenure.
This simple form does not need to be sworn before a solicitor nor does it need to be witnessed.
This pack can either be used as is, or can be used in conjunction with our pack on ‘Regulatory Reform: forms for agreement to surrender tenancy’. This pack contains all you will need in order to set up a lease which excludes security of tenure under the 2004 regulations. The regulatory reform pack contains the forms required in order to affect a surrender of a business lease. It is linked at on the right hand side of this page.
If you are setting up a new lease and want to exclude security of tenure, you need these forms.
- Prescribed form of notice to be served as the “14 day health warning” for new lease
- Prescribed form of declaration for new lease
- Statutory declaration if less than 14 days notice is given
- Paragraph to be inserted in lease (already contained in all Net Lawman leases)

Easy to use, even if you have no legal knowledge
Many of our customers are lawyers, but our documents don't require you to be one. Wherever it may be needed, our guidance notes explain the purpose of each paragraph, whether we recommend changing it, and what you might like to consider before you do so.
Our view is that, when editing our documents, you shouldn't have to worry about how to add legal wording. So our documents consider a far greater range of issues than our average customer will need, and because we avoid cross referencing paragraphs, we make it easy for you simply to delete what you don't need without affecting the rest of the document.
