About this document

Excluding security of tenure used to be a laborious task, achieved by joint court application. A procedure brought in during 2004 is much simpler to follow.

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 remove his right to security of tenure.

This simple form does not need to be sworn before a solicitor nor does it need to be witnessed.

This pack contains all you need in order to set up a lease that excludes security of tenure under the 2004 regulations. It can either be used as is, or can be used in conjunction with our Forms to surrender a tenancy.


  • Prescribed form of notice to be served as the “14 day health warning” for a new lease
  • Prescribed form of declaration for a 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)

I have used Net Lawman before and so felt confident to purchase again. I am no expert so these documents were easy for a lay person like myself to use. Highly recommended
