If you are using our tenancy agreement for the scheme of your choice, you can ignore this page because the prescribed information is built into all our assured shorthold tenancy agreements (you must fill in the information of course).
Prescribed information is the information contained in The Housing (Tenancy Deposits) (Prescribed Information) Order 2007
The giving of the prescribed information is the part that almost all landlords get wrong the first time. Hopefully this guidance will assist. The prescribed information should ideally be given at the same time as the tenancy as that will make it easier to get the document signed by the tenant(s)
The guidance here is straight forward what to do guidance. For a full analysis of the actual order requiring the information see our article here.
