Paperwork attachments for accelerated possession application

Hi, I have a question about the documents that should be included when sending the N5b to the court – should I include both the first and the most recent tenancy agreements or just one of those and how many copies of each complete document? Thanks

    You should attach the first and last agreements to the form.

    You will need one copy of everything for you to retain, one copy for the court and one copy for each named tenant.

    Full details of what to attach and copies are available on the guidance page here.

    Thanks that’s fantastic

    The tenancy agreement that the agent provided didn’t include the Gas/EPC/How to rent – even though the agent told me by email that the existing Gas cert was provided to the tenant at the same time as the AST, I also sent (recorded delivery – signed for) the EPC and How to Rent prior to the Form 6A service and the latest Gas cert was given to the tenants (which they signed) several months prior to the 6A service. Your ‘documents to attach’ in the guide says ‘The tenancy agreement(s) should contain all documents provided at the time or before occupation’ – should I attach them anyway even if they were given but not signed for? (that’s a lot of paperwork including 4 copies of the entire How to rent guide) . . . or should I stick to providing just the first and last tenancy agreements as they were completed and signed? (because my versions of them don’t make reference to those other documents) – thanks!

      We would personally provide everything that was given even if not signed for.

      It’s up to the tenant to disagree with what was given if they choose to but there’s nothing that can be done about that.
