    13 & 44 look the same.

    Modify any clause to remove the words "without the landlords written permission"

    43 is unlawful

    A lot of them are also written into the RTA. You just double up on it in your TA.

    Is this property subject to a bodycorp? IF so, the bodycorp rules need to be included.

    Because the TT has ruled that the landlord may not unreasonably with hold permission. Simple really.

    I would never take this place as a tenant. Very clear that the landlord is going to be a pain to deal with.

    Then, the 13 page tenancy agreement we use plus up to 50 pages of in going inspection reports/photos would definitely put you off.

    Clause 3 is illegal too- unless a property manager/ letting agent. Landlords can't charge a letting fee

    From tenancy services:
    "An agent is someone who has the authority to act for someone else. They take on the responsibilities of that person under the tenancy agreement.
    A letting agent is a person who makes a living from renting or managing properties. They are usually a person who works for a property management company.
    Some examples of people who aren’t usually letting agents are:

    • private landlords renting out their own properties (unless they manage properties for other landlords)
    • A person who is part of a trust (a trustee or beneficiary of a trust)
    • A person who is the director of a company that owns a rental property

    Some of those other clauses are plain silly too - so ironing is banned?

    I'd not be renting off that fascist landlord.

    So, Craig, if a LL or PM made use of a solicitor, with whom a tenant had to deal
    so as to execute the tenancy documentation, what would that lawyer be?

    An agent?
    A letting agent?
    A legal representative?
    Something else?

    And - whatever - could said legal beagle charge a letting fee? Or a legal fee?
    Or call it a something else fee.

    Solicitors are allowed to, land lords aren't.

    If you rip tenants off a weeks rent as a letting fee good for you- it isn't legal though.
