A signature does not make it legal
Pawlowski, Mark (2009) A signature does not make it legal. Estates Gazette, 936. pp. 90-92.Full text not available from this repository.
Highlights the pitfalls for tenants of entering into standard tenancy agreements without first seeking professional advice. Considers the scenario of an assured shorthold tenancy concluded for a five-year term using Oyez's standard form of tenancy agreement for letting to determine whether such an agreement, which makes no reference to a deed, can amount to a legal lease. Describes the formalities for creating a legally valid lease and looks at whether the lease could take effect as an equitable lease or a periodic tenancy. Examines the availability of statutory protection for the tenant.
