Changes to paragraphs

Note that no paragraph numbers have changed.

Wording edited to make it clearer that the tenant is permitted to occupy but is not a "Permitted Occupier".

The word "agree" has been replaced with "understand" to make it clear processing of the data is not based on consent.
The words Council Tax have been removed to avoid problems with the tenant fee ban where council tax cannot be paid to the landlord.
Added other things like security fobs and remotes to key to be returned. The definition of returning to the landlord or agent has been removed to standardise the wording.

We have replaced the word "attached" with "provided" as one court case held that it was not complaint as it was not stapled!

Use of the word "term" has been replaced by "element" to make the usage consistent.

The word "Contractor" has been removed to make the clause apply to any appointment.

Wording grammar altered slightly from "Clean the windows of the Property" to "Ensure the windows of the Property are cleaned"

Add new item to list: ", wet wipes (including "flushable wet wipes")"
Add new text to list: "or evidence of damage or breach of tenancy"

Added new text: "or other access devices"

Added new text: "or radiators"

Return to the landlord or landlord's agent has been removed to standardise the paragraph.

Access fobs and remotes added and return to landlord or agent removed to standardise.

On the last line, there is a comma added after the word "accommodation" to improve the grammar.

The clause has been widened from just damage to the property to damages for breach of contract.

Section 11 repairing obligations are in section 11(1) so we have added the sub para number.

These clauses vary by deposit scheme. However, as in 1.8, we have removed the word "attached" for the prescribed information.

TDS address updated following their move after the fire.

The DPS version reference to the CIA has been removed as The DPS no longer use them.

Tenancy Agreement - Contractual
