Relevant assured or secure tenancies or licences may convert over to secure converted contracts on 1st December 2022.

Sch 12 details specific exceptions to which tenancies/licences can convert to a secure converted contract. These are:

introductory tenancies = will become ‘intro standard contracts’

demoted tenancies = will become ‘prohibited conduct’ standard contracts

Tenancies/licences made before the appointed day, treated as if made on the appointed day – s240.

Fundamental provisions from the RHWA Model Contract (next lesson) will automatically be incorporated into any existing agreement and will overrule any incompatible terms between the old agreement and the new converted contract.

Supplementary terms will also automatically move across to the original agreement UNLESS they contradict the original terms.
