Tenancies & Licences

The CLA offers direct access to a qualified solicitor or barrister who can advise you on the particular issue you may have relating to all aspects of residential lettings.

We regularly help identify the respective rights and responsibilities in arrangements that are often very long standing and with nothing in writing.

While we cannot act for our members, we regularly advise on requisite agreements, forms and notices as well as procedural issues.

We have particular expertise in the complexity of letting cottages to agricultural workers and the consequent security of tenure implications. We can supply the notice that must be served to ensure that agricultural workers can be granted Assured Shorthold Tenancies (ASTs) and also the often-requested Service Occupation Agreement.

Regular publications

To update our members on legal developments and matters of general interest, we publish articles regularly in Land and Business magazine.
